NCCAOM - The mission of the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) is to establish, assess, and promote recognized standards of competence and safety in acupuncture and Oriental medicine for the protection and benefit of the public. Practitioners who are certified by the NCCAOM must initially pass a series of written board exams and subsequently earn a minimum number of continuing education credits every 4 years. The state of Colorado DOES NOT require licensed acupuncturists to complete any continuing education in order to renew their licenses. The only way the Colorado public knows if a practitioner is actively continuing her studies in the profession is to verify that she is NCCAOM board certified. This is very important, and I often tell family members to not even consider going to anyone who does not have current NCCAOM certification. At this website you can locate certified practitioners in your area.
