How the Subscription Program Works

The Foundation - GRAPAs Library of Training Classes  
At the heart of all GRAPA training and certification is our library of hundreds of hours in best practices training and testing covering dozens of subject areas defined by practicing professionals as being of critical importance. 
 
These classes have been organized into 4 Hour Units - Each unit covers a different competency domain from the GRAPA body of knowledge. A unit consists of : 
  • 4 Hours of Online Live Lecture 
  • Study notes and handouts 
  • A final exam 

The Perpetual Schedule of Classes  
Each month we review which classes are of the most interest to students and pre-schedule them for different times and days during the month. This method guarantees that all classes are offered many times during the year at different times, based on demand.
