Important changes to MAINPRO®

The CFPC is making some significant changes to Mainpro, based on member recommendations, to help all Mainpro participants meet their changing learning requirements. The system changes will also ensure that the appropriate mechanisms are in place to allow Mainpro to evolve and improve over time. We understand that change can be challenging at times and want to ensure all our members have a successful transition to Mainpro+. Below are some frequently asked questions about Mainpro+:

How do M1, M2, and MC credits fit into Mainpro+?

The current credit categories of M1, M2, and MC will be replaced by the more intuitive categories of: Group Learning, Self-Learning, and Assessment. We will be eliminating the terms M1, M2, and MC with the launch of Mainpro+. Please download our latest brochure for more information on new credit categories.

How do I “convert” my credits for Mainpro+?


Please continue to report your credits online as you normally would and ensure you are reporting the required amount of credits per year and cycle. Prior to the launch of Mainpro+ our helpful staff will process all the required credit conversions for you. All M1 and MC credits will be converted to Certified credits and all M2 credits will be converted to Non-Certified credits. You will always have access to your previous records via our online reporting tool or by calling one of our Mainpro Coordinators.
