Texas Acupuncture CAE Changes

Licensed acupuncturists must obtain a minimum of eight hours of general acupuncture therapy, two ethics and safety, six herbology, and four biomedicine CAEs. The new categorical requirements for continuing education courses are fulfilled by specific acupuncture CAE courses meeting those requirements. Fortunately, HealthCMi provides a special webpage denoting the acupuncture CEU courses that fulfill these requirements. To learn more, visit: Texas Acupuncture CAEs >


In related news, the NCCAOM (National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine) has made changes for acupuncture CEU requirements (1 PDA = 1 CEU = 1 hour). All CPR education courses are now worth 4 PDAs toward the 60 PDA/CEU four year requirement. This value has changed over the years and the current value will remain at 4 PDAs unless another policy change is issued by the NCCAOM.

An important note about CPR PDAs, the NCCAOM accepts automatic submission of all PDAs by acupuncture continuing education providers, except for CPR PDAs. For CPR courses, NCCAOM diplomates can download their certificate of completion from the HealthCMi website and then upload it into the NCCAOM portal. All other courses will already be uploaded for you. This is a special exception for CPR courses, according to NCCAOM policy.

HealthCMi is the first acupuncture continuing education provider to automatically send your PDAs/CEUs directly to the NCCAOM after receiving a certificate of completion. However, the NCCAOM does not accept CPR certificates from any providers and the NCCAOM no longer assigns a PDA number to any CPR courses. As a result, uploading the certificate of completion is done the old way, acupuncturists simply download the CPR certificate from HealthCMi and manually upload it into the NCCAOM online portal. Again, all other courses are sent automatically, which is a real time saver for acupuncturists.

The same NCCAOM requirements for safety and ethics are in effect for acupuncture diplomates. Fortunately, HealthCMi has safety, ethics, and CPR courses that fulfill your acupuncture continuing education requirements. Visit the special safety, ethics, and CPR page to select a course: Safety, Ethics, CPR >
