The Maintenance of Certification (MOC) process is designed to facilitate and document the continuing professional development of each certificate diplomate through its focus on the essential elements of quality medical physics. All the KMPCB certificates (TMP and NMP) including initial certification (IC) as well as certificate equivalences are automatically enrolled in the process immediately following initial registration on KMPCB registry and record.
MOC final decision is evaluated annually in January, using a rolling calendar-year "look-back" of the past three years. Diplomates must attest to meeting MOC requirements by January 1 each year. Attestations are made through myKMPCB at http://www.kmpcb.org.
MOC process starts from next January after initial certification year. The required CE credits are 45 credits within the past three year, and at least 5 credits with KMPCB-governed education course should be included. The person who have a certificate should update and attest his/her CE activities with an appropriate documents through myKMPCB the KMPCB website, and personal CE credits can be checked and followed up. The submission deadline for documents is 31th March every year. The person who wants to maintain KMPCB certifiacte, one should submit required documents and MOC fee (\100,000) within a deadline. The person who did not fulfill the MOC requirements can be deprived by authorities of board of directors.
