CCAM achieved a 100% pass rate in 2016! 17 new Associates passed their Advanced Test, of which 5 attained F1rsts - a 29% rate against the regional average of 19% (we also had an existing member refresh his skills with a re-test and achieve a F1rst). The average time from enrolment to test was 287 days, compared to the regional average of 532 days. It pays to join CCAM for the best chance of enhancing your riding skills!
