Mock oral ABR class – Rex Ayers, MS, DABR, MCCPM, CHP
NMPC offers ABR and CCPM mock oral boards in preparation for the board examinations. All sessions are conducted via WEBEX so all you need is a web cam to participate. The emphasis is placed upon oral communication rather than medical physics content, although feedback is provided. All sessions are recorded for download and later review. Your session will be conducted with one other person and each session lasts two hours. You may sign up for one or as many sessions as you like. A hard copy of each examination will be provided after completion. The hardest part of the oral board process for most people is being able to answer the questions in a clear, concise manner. Please contact Rex Ayers, MS, DABR, MCCPM, CHP for additional information at rayers@nmpc.org.
