OCC Component 3 – Cognitive Assessment

In order to evaluate cognitive retention of the material required to be certified in NMM, the candidate must sit for and pass a proctored written cognitive evaluation being offered twice yearly during Convocation in March and in Indianapolis, IN in the fall. This examination can be taken between year 8 and 10 of the 10-year certification cycle. The new time-dated certificate will begin at the expiration date of the current certificate. It is imperative that the candidate make arrangements to sit for this examination prior to the expiration of certification in order to avoid having to re-enter OCC via a recertification pathway. The diplomate can find dates of examinations on the AOBNMM website.
