SFPA's CP REVIEW & STUDY COURSE FOR JANUARY 2011 TEST WINDOW.
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 January 2011. This ten-week Study Course is scheduled to begin on October 9, 2010 and continue through December 18, 2010.
As you may know, NALA will be re-structuring the administration of its exam for the first time this fall. Starting in fall 2010, the exam will be administered at an ACT testing location three times a year. This course is scheduled for someone planning to schedule their test during the month of January 2011. SFPA has re-configured this review course to end just before the January 2011 testing schedule.
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.
During Orientation on October 9th, any questions you may have about the study course plan, and the exam itself will be answered. You should have your CLA Review Manual at Orientation.
The study classes will span an nine-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 December 18th provides the students a further measure of confidence by simulating the testing environment.
