CAC formerly known as Exchange is the heart of all interactions with your assessor. Candidates who enrolled prior to January 2019 should click on “Cohort One”. Anyone who enrolled after January 2019 should click on “Cohort Two”. You will need to use this part of the site to submit your coursework and communicate with your assessor. The system will also record all your interactions which will assist to evidence learning.

The procedure to submit your work is as follows:
