Acupuncture Continuing Education for NCCAOM Recertification

NCCAOM Recertification Information

Acupuncture Continuing Education Courses for NCCAOM Recertification

 All NCCAOM® PDA Certificates of Completion will be emailed to the participants via the NCCAOM portal. Your PDA points will automatically be entered into NCCAOM® Recertification Transcript! This means that you will no longer have to report the PDA course manually to recertify.

With the exception of CA and FL most states use NCCAOM certification for acupuncture continuing education credit. Please check with your licensing board if you are uncertain what the requirements are. Below is a state map with licensing requirements.


NCCAOM diplomates need to complete 60 professional development activity points (PDA’s) every four years.

Professional Development Activity (PDA) is a Continuing Education Unit (CEU). 1 hour of Instruction = 1 PDA Point

The NCCAOM allows for all of the required credits (PDA points) to be completed online or as distance learning. (Check your state, it may be different)

CPR   A maximum of 4 PDA points is awarded for verification of CPR which is a stand-alone category. These points may not be used in the Safety/Ethics or any other  category.

Important Note: An online CPR course certificate/ID card is accepted by the NCCAOM for the CPR recertification requirement; however, each state has its own requirements related to the type and provider(s) of CPR which are accepted for licensure. It is the Diplomates responsibility to check their state’s information to ensure licensure requirements for CPR are attained.
