Step by Step Process
NCCAOM Board Examination Process
In collaboration school officials, the NCCAOM has created Steps to Become an NCCAOM® National Board-Certified Acupuncturist™. This document is an overview of the step-by-step process that students take when applying to sit for the NCCAOM examinations. The feedback from school officials and students has been very positive. NCCAOM would like to thank Mary Simmons, Director of Student Services and Financial Aid at the Florida College of Integrative Medicine with the creation of this document.
