    Connecticut Governor Malloy signs Acupuncture Bill to 
    Require Continuing Education for License Renewal and 
    Updates Requirements for Licensure


    On June 1, 2012 Governor Malloy signed into law 
    Public Act No. 12-39, AN ACT CONCERNING LICENSING REQUIREMENTS FOR ACUPUNCTURISTS

    With the passage of this law, all Connecticut Licensed Acupuncturists are required to either maintain a certification by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), or earn not less than thirty contact hours of continuing education approved by the NCCAOM within the preceding twenty-four month period.

    If you are current with NCCAOM certification you don’t need to do anything further except maintain your certification. If you are not currently NCCAOM certified, you do not need to renew certification but you must complete NCCAOM approved continuing education courses.

    This law is in effect for registration periods beginning on and after October 1, 2014, allowing practitioners two years from the signing of this law to earn the necessary continuing education.

    This bill also updates the Education Requirements to the profession’s standards of 1905 hours of didactic and clinical training, 660 of which are clinical. In addition, all portions of the NCCAOM examinations required for acupuncture certification are necessary. This includes Foundations of Oriental Medicine, Acupuncture with Point Location, and Biomedicine.

    The full text of the law can be found at: Public Act No. 12-39
