Learning Modules

A Learning Module is a self-directed education experience that contains a video of an NCRA archived webinar, resource materials, a quiz, and an evaluation. Participants have 90 days from the date the activity was accessed  to complete the module and are able to claim CE credit immediately following the completion of the module and passing the quiz. Information regarding CE credits for each Learning Module can be found within the description of each module. CE credits range between 1.o - 1.5 CEs per Learning Module.

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.

SPECIAL NOTE: Registration for all NCRA learning activities is per-person only. It entitles only the paid registrant to view and participate. For details, see NCRA's Registration Policy.
