This event is usually held in conjunction with the NCRA Annual meeting. The purpose is to provide advanced training in data collection and coding. Topics and materials are based on the educational needs in the cancer registry community. A Pre-Test completed by registrants prior to attending is often used to assess educational needs. The training specifically targets the educational needs identified in the pre-test.

The SEER registries are required to send representatives to the annual event and participants are responsible for distributing information from the training to all appropriate personnel at their individual registries.
