A Friend of NRRTS is an individual involved in the Rehabilitation Technology industry or profession who shares the mission and vision of NRRTS. An IFON does not meet the requirements for regular NRRTS Registration.
Don Olson, one of our newest IFONS has this to say,
“I am very glad to support the important work of NRRTS as an individual friend. This is a great option for professionals in the rehabilitation technology field to stay current with this rapidly changing service area. I so appreciate and am grateful for the high quality educational opportunities that NRRTS offers at a reduced rate for individual members. Thank you NRRTS!”
