  2. Hi,
    I had attempted and passed FRM part 1 exam back in jul ‘21. I want to give the part 2 exam in may ‘22 but i noticed that my FRM membership has a validity of only one year and will expire in march ‘22.
    So would i have to repay the membership/registration fee again?

  3. Hi, how can i know the test center location near my country before I register? I know there is not one in Chile, but there is one in Peru by GARP page, but in the page of the provider there is no info about where it is or even if there is one in Peru

    Thanks

    • You’re right – Peru does seem unavailable with PSI at the moment. This may be Covid-related since Peru was one of the postponed locations in the past. I’d check with GARP (memberservices@garp.com).

  4. Hi i have given my FRM part 1 exam this month on 10th want to know when i can register for part 2 for next year ????

  5. I appeared for the FRM Part I exam in May’17 and passed in July’17. I am now planning to take my Part 2 exam in Dec’21, for which I am assuming the result won’t be available before Feb’22.

    Thus, if I pass it will cross Dec 31st of the fourth year of passing the FRM part 1 exam.

    Request advice whether it will be valid or will I not be eligible for FRM certification even I pass the Part 2 exam scheduled in Dec’21.

  7. Hi,
    So are the exam locations in the United Stated out for the November/December FRM part 1 and part2 yet? I can’t find any locations available around Los Angeles through the system but was able to see exam locations that are in states other than California. I’m so worried that I can’t find a location to take the exam and the institution is not replying my messages and emails.

    • It’s likely because of Covid. According to Pearson Vue:

      Why can’t I find appointment availability?

      We are opening testing availability up as quickly as possible in a manner that’s safe for our candidates and employees…Appointment availability continues to change due to COVID-19, so be sure to check back regularly to see if and when new time slots become available.

  8. Hello.
    Would anyone know the dates for the FRM Part 1 exam within the 8-21 May window? My computer based exam was scheduled for today however the link never worked and the test center staff confirmed that my exam will be rescheduled. I have forgotten the possible dates and it is stressful not knowing when the exam could possibly be. Wouldn’t want it to spring up on me.

  9. Hii i want to defer my part 1 exam now can i do this now please guide as the scenario is getting worst will there be any alternative ?

    • Hi Aman, unfortunately GARP isn’t clear about this upfront.

      If a candidate has COVID-19, it is best to first email them at memberservices@garp.com, with proof of that. And follow up right away with a phone call since it’s so close to the exam now. My guess would be that it is assessed individually on a case-by-case basis.

  10. After the completion of part 2 exam and successfully surpass the threshold of the exam, when are we gonna get our certificate?

    Reply
    • Hi Fergy, once you passed FRM Part 2, you still need to meet the 2 years of relevant full time work experience requirements.

      Assuming you meet the work experience requirement and submitted that to GARP, you should receive your FRM certificate within 1 month from the date of approval of your work experience.

      Hope this helps!
