SFPA's CP REVIEW & STUDY COURSE FOR SEPTEMBER TEST WINDOW.
PLEASE NOTE: the previously published schedule for this review has been changed to accommodate classes for currently registered attendees. We will make every effort to accommodate additional registrants by the new deadline of July 10.
Please advise anyone planning to take NALA's CP exam that the administration and testing schedule has changed and there will be no exam in early December, or in March or July of next year. CP exams will now be administered electronically, and the test will be offered at ACT testing centers during the entire month of September, January and May. SFPA has adjusted their review schedule accordingly, but due to the low number of registrants for this first review course since the change, we are not certain potential applicants are aware.
The South Florida Paralegal Association (SFPA) is proud to present its CLA/CP Review & Study Course for those preparing to take the NALA-sponsored CLA/CP Exam in the month of September 2010. This ten-week Study Course is scheduled to begin on July 10, 2010 and continue through August 28, 2010.
NALA is administering the CP exam electronically at ACT testing centers for the first time in September 2010. You may schedule sections of your test at any time during the month of September.
Review classes are scheduled on Saturdays at Florida International University (FIU) located at 11200 SW 8th Street from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon and from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., or as otherwise indicated on the schedule.
Orientation will be held via conference call with those registered to attend by July 2nd, and any questions you may have about the study course plan, and the exam itself will be answered. You should have your CLA Review Manual by July 2nd to begin your study of the material covered in the Review sessions on July 10th.
The study classes will span an seven-week period and provide students with the appropriate time period to study the material on their own, and participate in a weekly review of the material in the Saturday classes. The mock exam on August 21st provides the students a further measure of confidence by simulating the testing environment.
