The CNAP programme is divided into semesters. There are four semesters in total, each covering a specific part of the CNAP curriculum. A student studies the Semesters 1 to 4 in sequence. Starting with Semester 1, the student progresses by passing each Semester in turn until all four are completed, thus obtaining the CNAP qualification.
