Two documents in electronic format are required at the time of the application for CA Route submission:
- A copy of active CA Acupuncture state license;
- A proof of free and clear CA Acupuncture state license. Proof of a free and clear licensed can be obtained from CA Acupuncture board website. You can look up your license on CA Acupuncture board website and click into it for more details and it will give you, original issue date, expiration date and it will state that your license is clear. You would have to take a very good clear screenshot of that screen and you can use that file to upload. As long as it is a good quality image. Please see example below for a Proof of Free and Clear License.
Please note: applicants will be required to upload both documents before they are able to proceed to the next step of the application process.
