The NCTRC Certification Standards serve as the governing policies and procedures for all certification services and credentialing processes.
All candidates for NCTRC certification and established CTRS certificants are responsible for reading and understanding the NCTRC Certification Standards. The NCTRC Certification Standards are available in English, French and Spanish.
NCTRC may deny certification or recertification, revoke certification or recertification, or issue other sanctions when a candidate does not comply with any of the NCTRC Certification Standards. All alleged violations of the NCTRC Certification Standards must be submitted in writing to NCTRC in a timely manner.
The NCTRC Certification Standards are updated periodically. Candidates are responsible for making sure they have the most current information and that they meet the current standards when they apply for certification. Please read the NCTRC Certification Standards thoroughly. If you have any questions about the NCTRC certification process or the information contained in the NCTRC Certification Standards, please contact NCTRC at (845) 639-1439 or send an email to nctrc@NCTRC.org.
