Licensure and Certification
DORA (Department of Regulatory Agencies, Divisions of Professions and Occupations):
Acupuncturists must apply for a Colorado license through DORA’s website, keep their practice information up to date, and follow the rules of our Practice Act.
NCCAOM (National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine):
The NCCAOM is the only national organization that validates entry-level competency in the practice of acupuncture and Oriental medicine (AOM) through professional certification. NCCAOM certification or a passing score on the NCCAOM certification examinations are documentation of competency for licensure in Colorado.
