The ALU Curriculum Group

 

The Curriculum Group is responsible for updating, editing and maintaining the ALU and MRAP textbooks. In addition to soliciting authors for new content, Curriculum Group members work with authors on updates to the current text. Two of the four ALU texts are revised each year, so that every two years, a new edition of each text is available.  The Curriculum Group also updates the Fundamentals of Risk Selection booklet.

Please note: The textbooks for the 2021 exam cycle are the same as the textbooks used for the 2020 exam cycle.

The revised Fundamentals of Risk Selection booklet is now available.
