NCCAOM PDAs / CEUs Online
Acupuncture Continuing Education Online
NCCAOM Provider #602
All HealthCMi courses are pre-approved by the NCCAOM for Diplomate PDAs. NCCAOM acupuncture continuing education points are referred to as PDAs (Professional Development Activity Points) and 1 PDA = 1 CEU.
Safety and Ethics PDAs
HealthCMi offers acupuncture online courses that are pre-approved for NCCAOM Diplomate recertification credit towards both the special Safety and Ethics category requirements.
HealthCMi courses fulfill the NCCAOM Core requirements in our online classroom environment. The online classroom is an "in-classroom" activity by NCCAOM standards and therefore all PDAs (CEUs) may be obtained online at HealthCMi for NCCAOM Diplomate recertification (except for the CPR requirement).
Biomedicine and Core PDA Categories
Biomedicine PDAs that are “directly applicable to patient care in conjunction with AOM treatments and/or modalities” are now accepted as part of the Core category. All HealthCMi courses may be applied towards the Core category. Extra PDAs earned in the Safety and Ethics categories may also be applied towards the Core requirement.
Do I need Adjunct Therapy PDAs?
No, however, the NCCAOM allows activities including martial arts to count for a limited number of PDAs per renewal period.
NCCAOM Diplomate PDAs For:
Diplomate of Acupuncture (Dipl. Ac.)
Diplomate in Oriental Medicine (Dipl. O.M.)
Diplomate in Chinese Herbology (Dipl. C.H.)
