Other Education 

NCRA develops training to meet the needs of registrars with all levels of experience. Some of this education may be introductory or informational and, as a result, does not qualify for continuing education (CE) credit. The training listed below falls under these two categories. 

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.
