To Recertify from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine:
To get the most up to date information on recertification, visit the NCCAOM website at www.nccaom.org
Frequently Asked Question: If my license is not in Maryland, will my State Board say that the CEUs from MAS are not approved by the NCCAOM?
In a communication from NCCAOM to an attendee from Vermont in June 2012, NCCAOM stated:
" Thank you for your call today regarding your PDA points. After looking at your recent recertification application, I see that all of your points were counted as approved courses under the core competency area. The courses were approved as per NCCAOM policy that states (under the highlighted category) :
*Approved NCCAOM PDA Coursework*
NCCAOM accepts PDA points for coursework that is directly for the purpose of enhancing a Diplomate’s knowledge or practice in Oriental medicine and meet one of the following criteria:
• The course is offered by a current NCCAOM approved PDA provider.
• The course has been accepted by a state regulatory board for license renewal.
• The course has been accepted by a professional healthcare organization. "
Since MAS courses are approved by the Maryland State Board of Acupuncture for license renewal CEUs, All MAS courses are accepted by the NCCAOM and therefore should be accepted by any board which accepts NCCAOM PDAs or CEU.
