The one-hour Training & Certification module was conceived to maintain MoCA’s superior validity and was designed for busy medical professionals.
Care providers and researchers of all backgrounds will gain applicable knowledge of neuroanatomy and the cognitive domains that MoCA assesses.
You will become more confident in administering MoCA and explaining results to patients and families.
You will receive a unique MoCA ID number and certificate. Your name and certified status will automatically appear on the tests you administer.
Successful completion of the official Training & Certification is mandatory for anyone administering paper based MoCA tests. We found only 33% of users have acceptable proficiency prior to MoCA Certification, compared to 79% after completing training only once
Training & Certification is now free for students, faculty members, academic researchers and publicly operated healthcare institutions. (Proof of status is required).
“MOCA's training and certification program has enabled me to learn the proper method to administer MOCA for my patients. With this, I'm more confident in assigning MOCA for my patients, as I'm sure that my method is comparable to the standard. MOCA has been a very useful screening tool for cognitive impairment during my daily busy clinical practice. I would certainly recommend this training program to my peers! Thank you! ”

“The MoCA training has given me confidence in my ability to administer the assessment and the assurance that the results are reliable, credible and valid. Working with people and doing these assessments is such a private and often threatening experience for the individuals. Knowing that I am certified gives me peace of mind that I am doing the right thing for me and them.”
“MoCA Training and certification program was easy, to the point and very informative at the same time. The training video can be replayed is the best feature. All the aspects are covered in training and tested in the certification test.”
