Coming Soon!

This December, the NRHA Basic Training website will be transitioning to a new, easy-to-use learning management system. This change is occurring because NRHA members have expressed the desire for an easier way to access and navigate through NRHA’s online courses. Trainers, keep an eye on your email for further details about the process and benefits you will soon be able to enjoy.

If you have questions, please contact our Member Services Team at (800) 772-4424 or
