How is this course delivered?


The CBFCA's RACA course is delivered as a fully online program. It is self-paced which mean you can stop, start, pause and review as often as you like. This is very convenient and is especially great for shift workers or those who might need to complete the course from home after hours if they are on the road during the day.

The content is sequentially provided so you can work through it smoothly in order if you wish. However, if you have some previous experience and wish to vary the way you work through the learning material, that's OK too.

You will have a series of assessments to complete as you go and you must get all of these correct before you can deemed to have passed the RACA course.
