    EPOC is pleased to announce our new Learning Management System (LMS) site to provide our members with recorded content of our meetings, training sessions for our YEP members who are on-track to becoming LEPs, and on-demand courses for LEP credits. The site is in the early stages of development and on-demand courses for LEP credits will be added soon as we obtain approvals from the LEP Board. Other content, including YEP training sessions and meetings, are available now as a benefit of EPOC membership with no additional fees required.

    To access the site:

    • Go to: https://epoc.mclms.net/en/ and click on login link to enter your EPOC main website credentials.

      Another way to access the site is to log in to EPOC's main website first at https://epoc.org/Sys/Login, and then go to the LMS site and click the login link. This will also allow you to reset/obtain your password if you have forgotten it.

    We will keep the EPOC membership updated as new content is added as we work towards making this site a resource for all EPOC members and to provide approved on-demand courses for LEP credits.
