RAPS Atlanta Chapter: Regulatory Affairs Certification (RAC) US Exam Overview

Are you thinking about taking the Regulatory Affairs Certification US exam? If so, join others from the Atlanta regulatory community for a full day session that will help you prepare for the April/May 2017 testing cycle. The session will be facilitated by a panel of certified regulatory professionals and is crafted to provide an overview of the exam.

As an added bonus, participants of this session will have access to an online community of fellow RAC test takers who will attend this same session offered by the New York/New Jersey Chapter. The collaboration of those from Atlanta (primarily medical device focused) and New York/New Jersey (primarily pharma focused) will result in a more diverse community of professionals to engage with.
