The next Certified Paralegal Review Course starts Saturday, December 5. It will be conducted live online, in Webex, from 12-5:30, on five Saturdays: 12/5, 12/2, 1/9, 1/16, 1/23

This session is for students graduating/completing their paralegal program in Fall 2020.  If you are graduating in spring 2021, this session is not for you – you’ll do it in the spring.

The two-part exam will be administered in-person, on campus at Phoenix College, on 1/30 and 2/27, from 9:00 a.m. - noon, subject to community health conditions permitting. 

To summarize:  There are two things you will need to register for:

1. The exam itself (this you must do through NALA, the organization that sponsors the exam and certification)
2. The CP Review Course to get you ready for this national certification exam.

The cost of the review course is $295 and includes being able to take the exam at no additional charge instead of having to pay a commercial testing center (most of which are not even available at this time).

You must register for the exam itself with NALA - click on "Online Application."
