Earning Points

The Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program requires that you earn some MOC points every two years to be reported as Participating in MOC

To be reported as Certified, you must earn 100 points every five years (the points you earn every two years count toward your 100 points) and meet the MOC assessment requirement through the traditional 10-year exam, the Knowledge Check-In, or a Collaborative Maintenance Pathway (CMP) assessment.
