Credential Maintenance & Verification

Search CTR Exam Web Site



Each candidate who receives a passing score on the total examination will be entitled to use "CTR" after her/his name and will receive a certificate from the Council on Certification.

To maintain a certified status a person must meet current continuing education requirements of NCRA. A registry of Certified Tumor Registrars will be maintained by NCRA and may be reported in its publications. NCRA oversees the maintenance of the CTR credential. In order to retain the CTR credential, a CTR must submit 20 continuing education hours to NCRA every two years and submit the applicable continuing education maintenance fee on an annual basis.

Certification will be revoked for falsification of an Application, violation of examination procedure or failure to adhere to NCRA's credential requirements. An appeal mechanism exists for challenging revocation of certification.


NCRA provides a verification service for employers to check the credential status of current and future employees. This verification is intended solely for substantiation of the CTR credential status of the individual being verified by the requesting entity. Disclosure and use beyond purposes for employment is not permitted. A copy of this request will be sent to the individual being verified. Verification will be sent to you within 10 business days.
