Acupuncture Canada offers two sets of examinations as part of its Core Program, to suit the requirements of different professions’ regulatory bodies across Canada and the United States.
If your professional college requires you to complete an examination after 100 hours of training, prior to practising acupuncture, the Level 1 exam is for you.
The Level 1 exam follows the successful completion of the first two courses of the Core Program – Foundations of Anatomical Acupuncture (AA1) and Clinical Applications in Anatomical Acupuncture (AA2).
The Level 2 exam follows the successful completion of all four courses of the Core Program – AA1 and AA2, as well as Basics of Traditional Chinese Medicine (BTCM) and Advanced Applications in Acupuncture (AA3).
If your professional college requires you to complete an examination after 200 hours of training, prior to practising acupuncture, the Level 2 exam is appropriate. You may also choose to take the Level 1 exam halfway through the Core Program as well as the Level 2 exam.
Each exam level includes a written and practical component. A passing grade of 75% is required on all examinations.
The ACC Designation (Acupuncture Canada Certification) is awarded after successful completion of the Level 2 written and practical exams.
