Helpful Hints to Determine Point Needs:
CATEGORY 1 – KNOWLEDGE & COMPETENCE
A minimum of 70 Category 1 points must be earned within the 10-year period for MOC. All 100 points required to complete your MOC may be earned in this category. Additional points can be earned, but will not count directly towards your MOC. (Additionally, you accumulate 45 points when you complete your required meeting attendance in a 10 year span.)
CATEGORY 2 – SERVICE
A maximum of 30 Category 2 points may be counted towards your MOC per 10-year period. Additional points can be earned, but will not count directly towards your MOC. Category 2 points are not required, but are encouraged, to complete your MOC.
