August 9, 2019 | Author: Royal College Staff

It’s hard to believe that 2019 is more than half over. That means the MOC Program reporting deadline is only five months away. Get ahead with a mid-year checkup.

    1. Log in to your MAINPORT ePortfolio.
    2. See how many credits you’ve reported so far.
    3. Find out how many credits you still need to claim.

Tip: We recommend that you start reporting some of your continuing professional development (CPD) activities now, instead of waiting close to the January 31st deadline.

Log in to MAINPORT ePortfolio and verify your credit status

Your MAINPORT dashboard shows a handy visual summary of your MOC credit balances, such as the total credits applied and where you are at with the minimum of 25 credits per section per cycle. You may also review your annual and overall cycle requirements by accessing a copy of your MOC Credit Summary (available on the My Reports tab).

In order to successfully close your MOC cycle, you must do three things.

Annual requirement Record at least 40 credits per year.
MOC cycle requirement Record at least 400 credits per cycle.

Document at least 25 credits in all MOC sections before your cycle ends.

Take a look at your account. How close are you?

Low on Section 1 credits?

Check your Holding Area in MAINPORT ePortfolio, where administrators may have uploaded your participation at a conference. If so, all you need to do is enter your learning outcome and submit the activity to apply these credits to your account. Not sure if your conference was accredited?
