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. NCCAOM Diplomates are responsible for ensuring all PDA/CEU credits completed during the recertification cycle have been reported to their Recertification Transcript.
As a courtesy, recertification reminders are sent to Diplomates at 365, 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. Click here for application processing times.
