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).
“The MoCA's training and certification program is simple to go through and assisted me on how to administer and score the MoCA instrument. The instrument looked complex to use for my research, but not anymore after going through the training and certification. ”
