We have been around for 5 years now and have 18 people who work on the SMART Team including 15 SMART Instructors who are all CTRSs throughout the country. Our current course library has 167.5 clock hours of NCTRC pre-approved continuing education which is over 3x the requirement NCTRC has for the CTRS recertification every 5 years. Here is a link to our website: Our Unlimited CEUs Membership is currently $149/year for 100% access to take all of our courses, the discount we offer to BATRA members is 20% off, each membership would then be just $119.20/year.
