The National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM®) is a non-profit organization established in 1982 and operates as a 501(c)6. Its mission is to establish, assess and promote recognized standards of competence and safety in acupuncture and Oriental medicine for the protection and benefit of the public.

As a part its mission, the NCCAOM is dedicated to promoting its nationally accredited certification programs and certified practitioners (Diplomates) to consumers and the public. NCCAOM accomplishes this by continuously offering customized services and publications for Diplomates to promote their certification such as marketing and consumer brochures, press packets, statistics about the profession and online continuing educational courses. These tools empower Diplomates to better inform consumers about the benefits of choosing an NCCAOM certified practitioner who can be found by going to the NCCAOM® Find-A-Practitioner Directory.

All of NCCAOM’s certification programs are accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) of the Institution for Credentialing Excellence (ICE). NCCA standards for accreditation exceed the requirements set forth by the American Psychological Association and the U.S. Employment Opportunity Commission. NCCAOM certification and/or the passing of the NCCAOM certification examination(s) are recognized for licensure by 43 states including the District of Columbia (which represents 98 percent of the states that regulate licensure of acupuncturists). Since the organization’s inception, the NCCAOM has issued more than 21,000 certificates in Acupuncture, Oriental medicine, Chinese herbology and Asian bodywork therapy.
