The National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) is a non-profit organization established in 1982. NCCAOM's primary mission is to protect the public by examining and certifying competence in the practice of acupuncture, Chinese herbology and Asian bodywork therapy. More than 13,000 practitioners have become Diplomates of the NCCAOM, and NCCAOM Certification is required for licensure in the majority of states. The Commission's Web site contains a searchable directory of certified practitioners and detailed information on its certification programs, including eligibility requirements and exam schedules.
