The show will also explore how its credential verification services to employers and healthcare agencies help to monitor personnel adherence to the standards of the Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist.

“The mission of NCTRC is to protect the consumer of recreational therapy services by promoting quality services delivered by certificants. A key factor in the organization’s ability to carry out that mission is recognition of the CTRS® credential, so we are extremely excited about this opportunity to educate consumers, employers and the general public about the value of this certification.” – Anne Richard, Executive Director of NCTRC
