MOC EXAMINATION UPDATES – Please refer to the Part III subsection of the MOC section of our website for full details regarding these summarized updates.

 

Remote access administration

Diplomates may choose to take their MOC exams at the ABP Examination Center in Tampa, Florida or via secure, remote computer access from their home or office.  Each examination session (spring and fall) will have a predetermined 2-week period for exam access.  

  • Remote MOC exams can be taken on any day (7 days a week) and at any time (24 hours) that the registrant chooses during the assigned 2-week period. 
  • Remote exam registrants are responsible for ensuring that operating system (OS) requirements, webcam, and microphone are installed on their computers prior to the start of the examination session.
