ADVANCED PARALEGAL CERTIFICATION
These courses are for those seeking advanced instruction in the subject as well as Certified Paralegals seeking advanced certification in specific practice areas. Certification is national, not state based. Registrants complete the course material online at their own pace. It usually takes 20 hours per course; 10 hours for the smaller personal injury practice area courses. CLE credit is available to Certified Paralegals upon completion of an APC course.

CP EXAM COMPUTERIZED
The Certified Paralegal Examination transitioned from a paper-and-pencil test to a computer-based test in September 2010. The test is available every 3 months. It must be taken at an ACT testing center with a proctor. You are able to take one section at a time, as long as you finish the test in a one-month time frame.
