Take Your Career to the Next Level

  • The FAIR Analysis Fundamentals course is a foundational introduction to FAIR, a risk methodology that risk analysts can use to accurately model and quantify risk.
  • Analysts trained in FAIR can build an effective approach to improved risk analysis and management.
  • By employing FAIR, organizations will make better-informed decisions because management will be given accurate, useful information by those with FAIR training. 
  • Training hours apply against CPE requirements for various certifications. Video-based online is worth 15 hours of CPE credit and onsite training equates to 16 hours of CPE credit.

Practice your FAIR Analysis with our free training application


  • The FAIR Institute is proud to offer FAIR-U, our first officially sanctioned training web application for running FAIR risk analyses, guaranteed to correctly leverage the FAIR model.
  • Currently provided by RiskLens Academy free of charge.
  • Perform single FAIR-based risk analyses and learn about the FAIR model and the different data inputs.

How FAIR Can Be Leveraged

These are some of the ways in which FAIR can provide value:

  • Accurately assess aggregate IT and cybersecurity loss exposure;
  • Identify the significance of control weaknesses and where concentrations of risk exist;
  • Estimate capital reserves and cyber insurance requirements;
  • Optimize security mitigation budgets and project priorities; and
  • Support oversight, governance and compliance requirements.

More Than Innovative Risk Modeling

Key components of the training include effective communication, calibration (a method for making better measurements), and better analyses.

  • Standardizing risk terminology in any organization will streamline communication and provide clarity regarding the risk landscape.
  • Calibration allows for subject matter experts to make accurate estimates in the absence of strong data.
  • While calibration is helping to bridge the information gaps, those gaps are getting smaller as FAIR lets organizations know exactly where to find hard data. In many cases, data already exists and FAIR-trained analysts know how to find and leverage this data.

FAIR Certification

All analysts successfully completing the sessions qualify for formal CPE credits and will be issued a Certificate of Completion.


  • The certification program was designed in a vendor-neutral fashion and ensures analysts understand key learning objectives from the Open FAIR risk analysis and risk taxonomy standards. 
  • At the conclusion of training, analysts will have learned all of the knowlegde required to be prepared for the Open FAIR certification exam.
  • Online and On-site training both include a $320 voucher for the certification exam.
  • You will then have the opportunity to test for formal FAIR certification with a voucher provided upon completion of our training course. FAIR certification is issued by The Open Group; testing is completed through Pearson VUE, at one of their numerous locations.
