NCCAOM Certification for CA Licensed Acupuncturists


Info for CA Acupuncturists

The NCCAOM is committed to advancing the practice of acupuncture medicine at the federal, state, and local levels. We advocate for our NCCAOM National Board-Certified Acupuncturists™ and the profession by maintaining our longstanding relationships with state regulatory boards throughout the United States. Part of those efforts involve working with California regulators to include the California Acupuncture Board (CAB) and California stakeholders to review options of using NCCAOM entry-level certification examinations as a pre-requisite for license to practice acupuncture in California.

This webpage provides California stakeholders with current and factual information regarding the development, administration, reliability, and validity of the NCCAOM examinations, and to provide updated information about Californian’s options to utilize the NCCAOM exams for licensure in CA.Info for CA Acupuncturists
