NAACCR CTR PREP AND REVIEW
We just finished our first CTR Prep and Review series of 2021! There are lots of changes to the exam this year. Radiation and Grade have been added to the open book portion of the exam. The closed book session covers the 2020 CoC standards (not including the 2021 updates). If you or someone you know are planning on taking the exam this year, be sure to cover these topics carefully! Or better yet, sign up for the NAACCR CTR Prep and Review Series! We have updated our curriculum to include these changes!

The next NAACCR CTR Prep and Review will be for the June exam and is tentatively set to begin on April 27. Additional information and a link to register will be available at: https://education.naaccr.org/ctr.
