PRCA Online Certificate (OCert PRCA)

This Online Qualification is aimed at intermediate level practitioners looking to progress their careers through a wide range of bite-sized online courses.

It is a perfect for those who want to avoid the cost involved in travel and time away from the office that face-to-face courses can incur.


To complete the Online Certificate, delegates must complete 18 webinars to amass a total of 180 points. At least one course from each of the six modules must be selected.

Length of Study: 

The Online Certificate is flexible in all respects. The range of courses enables delegates to focus on areas that they wish to develop, while the technology means that delegates can complete the 90 minutes courses without leaving their desks thereby saving time and travel costs. Each online ‘webinar’ lasts 90 minutes and happens live with a trainer. Delegates can communicate with the trainer and ask questions via a live chat box.


There is no assessment as part of this qualification.

On Completion: 

On completion you will receive a signed certificate from the PRCA Qualifications Board. You will also be entitled to use designatory letters OCert PRCA in recognition of your achievement.
