MCCC Prep Course

Our unique MCCC preparation course lasts for two months (you have two months to finish your MCCC) but we work out a rather complex approach with you:


In addition to our discussions that occur in the forums, you will also participate in real-time meetings to answer your questions and concerns once every two weeks. It is sometimes difficult to learn to use tools without the opportunity to ask questions in real-time. You must be familiar with Elluminate to participate fully in these synchronous meetings. We believe that this approach and methods will assist you to prepare your project and study for the narratives and the exam. In fact... we know it does!!!
