MROCC CME Offerings

COST EFFECTIVE CME FOR THE MRO

In this rapidly changing arena it is crucial for MROs to be up to date in the latest technologies, procedures and regulations.  MROCC's challenging and innovative manuals and CME activities are developed by leaders in the field of drug testing, and provide practical and detailed learning experiences for MROs in both regulated and non-regulated testing programs.

ACCREDITATION/CREDIT

All MROCC CME activities offer AAFP Prescribed credit and may be used to fulfill state requirements for CME updating. The American Board of Preventive Medicine has approved these activities for LLSA credits towards ABPM Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part II requirements. Visit the ABPM Website for additional information on MOC.

MROCC CME for Recertification

These CME activities are based on the The Medical Review Officer's Manual: MROCC's Guide to Drug Testing, 6th edition available from OEM Press.

Option 1: MROCC's 25 Hour "At Home" Self-Study CME Activity

For those who need to recertify, this activity consists of reading the MRO Manual and 49 CFR Part 40, completing the CME evaluation, and passing the MROCC Recertification Examination - All from the convenience of home! This is the most cost-effective means to recertification - and there is absolutely no need to travel to a training course or an examination site! The cost of this activity is $695 ($170 CME/$525 Recertification Examination) and includes the online recertification examination and up to 25.00 AAFP Prescribed credits (and 25 hours of MOC credit for ABPM Diplomates). The price for this activity does not include the manual, which must be purchased separately from OEM Press.

This activity fulfills both DOT and HHS retraining requirements and MROCC recertification requirements for MROs. The AAFP has reviewed MROCC MRO Manual Self-Study CME Activity and deemed it acceptable for up to 25.00 Enduring Materials, Self-Study AAFP Prescribed credits. Term of Approval is from 01/01/2022 to 01/01/2023. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. AAFP Prescribed credit is accepted by the American Medical Association as equivalent to AMA PRA Category 1 credit(s)™ toward the AMA Physician's Recognition Award. When applying for the AMA PRA, Prescribed credit earned must be reported as Prescribed, not as Category 1. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. The American Board of Preventive Medicine (ABPM) has approved this activity for a maximum of 25 LLSA credits towards ABPM MOC Part II requirements.
