Acupuncturists undertake at minimum four years of extensive and comprehensive graduate training at nationally certified schools. All acupuncturists must pass three national board exams, and meet strict guidelines to practice in every state. For more information on the educational path of an acupuncturist, please visit The National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
In addition, acupuncturists are required to complete a course in needle safety. Please visit CCAOM for information on the Clean Needle Technique course.
