All courses are developed by a veteran certified cancer registrar (CTR) and meet the criteria for NCRA CTR Credential Maintenance as an advanced topic, or content that would be further advanced than that required on the CTR exam.  On special occasions courses may be developed by individuals outside of RegistryMindset who are either experienced cancer registrars or have professional or cancer-related healthcare experience commensurate with our learning program standards of development.

RegistryMindset members are provided one course each month per the terms of their prepaid membership.  In the future we will be offering courses ‘on demand’ for individuals who are seeking a specific course or topic.
