RAC Credits
Thursday, 04 March 2021 (9:00 AM) - Friday, 05 March 2021 (2:00 PM) Eastern Time (US & Canada)

Are you planning to take the Spring 2021 Global RAC Drugs Exam?

Join others from the regulatory community for a workshop/study group crafted to sharpen your critical, analytical and strategic test taking skills. The sessions will be facilitated by a panel of certified (RAC) regulatory professionals that are subject matter experts in their field.

During the workshop, faculty will review challenge questions similar to the style and content of the RAC Exam. This style of teaching has been used in other preparatory workshops and been determined to be most useful for those taking the RAC Exam.

Participation in this workshop should not be your only method of exam preparation. RAPS provides many exam preparation materials which can help you develop a comprehensive study plan.

NOTE: Registration for the Spring 2021 RAC Window closes on February 25, 2021. The Spring testing window runs from 22 March to 30 April 2021
