Acupuncture Canada offers two sets of examinations as part of its Core Program. The flexibility of the program allows professionals to complete the training and examination required by their individual regulator for entry to practice.
The Level I Examination follows the successful completion of the first two courses in the Core Program – Foundations of Anatomical Acupuncture (AA1) and Clinical Applications in Anatomical Acupuncture (AA2).
The Level II Examination follows the successful completion of all four courses in the Core Program – AA1 and AA2, plus Basics of Traditional Chinese Medicine (BTCM) and Advanced Applications in Acupuncture (AA3).
All examinations include a written and practical component. A passing grade of 75% is required on all examinations.
The ACC designation – either Level I or Level II – is awarded after successful completion of the examinations.
