TCR Trainings 

The TCR training team provides training events throughout the year, including basic training webinars and annual statewide trainings by guest speakers.

We are also excited to offer a new web-based education platform for all cancer reporters, regardless of your level of expertise. The Fundamental Learning Collaborative for the Cancer Surveillance Community (FLccSC) was developed by the Florida Cancer Data System and the South Carolina Central Cancer Registry. It provides online training and continuing education courses and quizzes. You can register for this free tool on the FLccSC website.
