If a member wishes to take a course outside of NCRA events, approved events, or pre-qualified learning opportunities, the member should request a determination of eligibility BEFORE taking the course. The member should email the Continuing Education Coordinator the following information:

  2. The duration of the course in hours
  3. The name and qualifications of the instructor
  4. How the proof of completion will be provided
  5. Which Section under Article III of the continuing education rules would the course fall under (ex: Section 3.01 Language Skills, Literature, and Linguistics)

If the course is determined eligible for credit, the member will receive an email stating how much credit will be awarded for the course and a note will be made in the member’s record. The member will still be required to provide the required information upon completion and pay submission fees. If the course is determined ineligible for credit, the member will receive an email explaining the decision.
