Notes from the Director, Dr David Gray & Associate Director, Dr Tushar Dixit

The Course is only available to candidates who are on the threshold of the Final FRCA Examination.
It is pointless and wasteful of time, effort & money to come to this course unless intending to sit the examination Imminently and thus considering oneself adequately prepared.
It should not be considered as a First Step in Revision or Preparation.

Re-Attending this Course
We do not think it is the best use of time or money to re-attend our Courses as much of the Material will be the same as you were exposed to previously.
We would not want re-attending Candidates to leave feeling that they have not gained full benefit from their time and their money.
Therefore, we do not advocate it.
We may make exceptions for re-attending this Course but you MUST let us know that you have attended before.
Due to the Group Work aspect of the Course, we will have to organise you with others who have been through it before as well to avoid upsetting any Group Dynamics.
