I just passed both FCCA exams! Now just awaiting the CPNE. I think this is the hardest part.

How long does it take to complete the fcca? ec told me that It could take anywhere from 2-4 months, that's along time.

Each FCCA requires 8 weeks, no less. You cannot do the final exams until week 8 of the course, no matter how fast you do the modules leading up to the final. 

If you take both FCCAs together, it's 8 weeks. If you take them consecutively, it's 16 weeks. Most students I know take them together.

Congrats on passing the FCCA. I just passed it over the weekend. It certainly wasn't easy, you really had to read the question carefully. Lots of questions had double answers that required prioritizing. Now the real fun begins. The dreaded CPNE and its 12-month waiting list. Ugh. Not looking forward to this.
