Maintenance of Certification (MOC) and Board Preparation Resources

The basic structure of the MOC program remains unchanged. To maintain a certificate, a diplomate will need to possess an unrestricted license in the jurisdiction where he/she practices, demonstrate commitment to life-long learning through self-assessment, and pass a secure examination in the discipline(s) in which they choose to recertify.

Diplomates need to earn 100 points (every five years) to recertify in one or more discipline(s).
