The recertification program is designed to ensure that NCCAOM Diplomates are performing activities to stay current within their practice area in a manner that benefits the safety and trust of the public as well as meeting the needs of the Diplomate.
Diplomates are responsible for renewing their certification every four years and are expected to maintain their status by participating in Professional Development Activities (PDA). Diplomates must earn a minimum of 60 PDA points during the four-year period immediately preceding the expiration of their certification.
As a courtesy, recertification reminders are sent to Diplomates at 180, 90, 60 and then 30 days prior to the expiration date of their certification. Diplomates are ultimately responsible for ensuring the timely submission of their recertification application.
