Changes to the Education Reimbursement Fund

Applying for courses/workshops/conferences and exams prior to event occurring.

BCTRA recognizes there are members who are unable to secure funding through their employers to attend continuing education events or sit for the NCTRC exam. The Association is now offering members and students the opportunity to apply for funds in advance of the event to support their registration, travel, accommodation or fee for sitting for the NCTRC exam. BCTRA will not release the awarded funds prior to the event; however members/students can attend the event or sit for the exam knowing they have secured funding. Following the event members and students will need to forward documentation of proof of attendance and payment and in the case of the NCTRC exam proof of passing. BCTRA will then forward the previously awarded reimbursement fund.

So this means that for the upcoming January 1st Reimbursement Fund application deadline members/students will be able to apply for:

January 1st

  • For courses/workshops/conferences/exams take September, October, November and December of the previous year.


  • For courses/workshop/conferences/exams that members and students would like to register for that they would attend in March/April/May and June of the current calendar year.
