US RAC Prep Webcast Series to Kick Off 15 July

US RAC Prep Webcast Series to Kick Off 15 July

While the Regulatory Affairs Certification (RAC) exams are experience-based and intended for professionals who have been working in the field for three to five years, don’t misinterpret that to mean you can rely solely on your professional experience and expect to pass with ease. The success rate for the exams is typically between 40% and 50%. When it comes to passing any of the four RAC exams, effective preparation is critical.

On 15 July, RAPS will host the first of its six-part webcast series designed to help candidates for the US RAC exam fill knowledge gaps and more efficiently prepare for the exam. It is not intended to be a complete study plan itself, but it certainly can be a valuable part of one, and can help in particular with the exam’s analysis and application to the workplace components.

Each webcast will provide applications and examples, as well as an interactive question-and-answer session with subject matter experts. Following is a complete list of the series’ individual webcasts, including dates, topics and presenters:
