NCRA Knowledge-Based Badge Programs

NCRA’s Knowledge-Based Badge Program is based on a specific educational curriculum for which participants receive a completion certificate (electronic and printable PDF) and a digital badge after coursework completion and receipt of a passing score on the related assessments. The program is managed by NCRA’s Education Department and is designed to demonstrate competency of a topic specific to the cancer registry profession. The curriculum and training are developed by subject matter experts. All NCRA Knowledge-Based Badges are reviewed by NCRA’s Program Recognition Committee and continuing education (CE) credits are awarded as deemed appropriate by the committee.

Special Note: NCRA has changed the name of its credential. Oncology Data Specialist (ODS) is the new name for the Certified Tumor Registrar (CTR) credential. Please note that any reference to the Certified Tumor Registrar (CTR) credential should be understood to be the Oncology Data Specialist (ODS) credential. For more information regarding the name change see the ODS Name Change.
