Renewal and Maintenance of Certificate (MOC)

The renewal process is not recertification. It’s a process by which you compile and submit a Profile of Professional Growth (PPG), demonstrating how your practices continue to align with the Five Core Propositions in your certificate area. In contrast to initial certification, the PPG is a single submission composed of three interrelated components and a reflection. These components draw upon a single group of Professional Growth Experiences (PGEs) you select. A ten year certificate will be issued upon successful completion of this renewal process.

Renewal Process



Beginning in 2021, NBCTs will extend their certificate through a new process called maintenance of certification (MOC). This will impact EVERY candidate who participates in the NEW process. You will not complete Renewal but the Maintenance of Certificate process. A five year certificate issued will be issued upon successful completion of the Maintenance of Certificate process.
