These webinars are aimed at reinforcing learning from online study materials with real work examples and arming students with practical know-how. Students are expected to spend 8 hours on this.

  1. Test Series – Continuous Evaluation

Each M-CCRA® participant needs to appear for mini test series / chapter refreshers at the end of each module to review their learning.
