  2. Concepts. Study the concepts that the topic sets out.
  3. Resources. Finish by taking a look at further resources related to the topic.  

Each topic contains a number of pages. You can move through each topic by clicking on the arrows located at the top and bottom of each page.

To get back to the home page you can click on the ‘NTOLP Topics’ link at the top of each page.

There are no time restrictions around completing the NTOLP, you can study at your own pace. However, you will not be able to print a certificate until you have successfully completed the course.

The certificates will then become available for Sonographers and RANZCOG Fellows in 10- Certificates of Completion. Please select the one appropriate to you.
