    I am currently in school for my cert. I am wondering how I get years of experience before I get the cert? I have not gotten a lot of information from my teacher as to where to look for a job. Do you have some ideas of how to get into the field? Or where I should look for some help

      Hi Kim,
      Some places will hire new grads that are eligible to sit for the NCTRC exam. Have you looked at all of the new postings on this page? I know some have different requirements.
