Federal Risk Management Process Training Program (FRMPTP)

Location type


The Federal Risk Management Process Training Program (FRMPTP) certifies students on the Interagency Security Committee (ISC) Risk Management Process (RMP) for Federal Facilities, a risk assessment methodology and risk tool. Both are the first to be certified by the ISC with experienced security practitioners developing this course.

Learning Objectives

Participants will master how to determine a Facility Security Level (FSL), identify a baseline Level of Protection (LOP), assess risks, determine the Necessary or Highest Achievable LOP, implement customized LOP, and measure performance. Participants will also master how to assess threat, vulnerability and consequence utilizing the Design-Basis Threat (DBT) Report.

Risk Management Process Tool 

Participants receive the first Interagency Security Committee (ISC) certified and approved Risk Management Process (RMP) Tool designed to automate the process of calculating facility security levels and identifying the relevant countermeasures associated with diverse types of threats. Updates to the tool are provided at no extra charge.


The Federal Risk Management Process Training Program (FRMPTP) provides a path for security practitioners to understand risk assessment methodologies and processes that can then be applied for compliance purposes. The team’s goal is to provide federal facility risk assessment training to all agencies to empower them to establish timelines for phased compliance metrics and successfully meet compliance requirements.
