Yes. See you there!
Pacific College follows all local, state, and federal requirements with regard to masking, testing, and vaccination. California and San Diego do not require vaccination for events of this size. This seems unlikely to change. If the rules change, this FAQ will be updated. California guidelines on masking change periodically based on local conditions. You can always get the latest information on face covering guidelines here.
Yes. All Pacific Symposium presentations will be approved by both the California acupuncture board and NCCAOM. There may be some limitations on how many credits you may receive for the morning and lunchtime qi gong exercises. Please contact your state board about this.

If you completed the attendance verification and course evaluation process on the Symposium website AND you are an NCCAOM diplomate, NCCAOM certificates should now be available for you in the NCCAOM portal located at https://cert.nccaom.org/. Log into the NCCAOM Certification Portal Click orange button Diplomate Benefits Click on My Learning tab Download the certificates
Please contact NCCAOM if you need guidance using their new certificate portal.
If there any errors on your NCCAOM certificate, please send an email to [email protected].
If your state license number or name is incorrect on the non-NCCAOM certificate that you downloaded from the Symposium website, you can update that by returning to the verification
form and correcting the information. Then, follow the steps to download a new copy of the certificate.
If you are missing one or more downloadable certificates, you will need to select the additional courses on the verification form and evaluate them. In this case, please send an email to [email protected] so that we may unlock the form for you.
Because all registration, attendance verification, course evaluation, and certificates are now managed online, we will generally need to direct you to a webpage to resolve most issues. Live chat is available intermittently throughout the day. Look for the chat icon at the lower left of this page. If chat is not available, please send an email to [email protected].
For certificates from 2019 or earlier or earlier, please place a ticket using the support form at the bottom of this page.
According to both NCCAOM and the California Acupuncture Board, live webinars count as “live courses.” This means that credit is awarded for verified attendance. No final quiz is required. Some states may have limitations on live webinar CEUs. Please check with your state licensing agency for current rules and regulations on how many live webinar credits you can use in the renewal process.
Attendance is verified by the attendee’s completion of the attendance verification form on the Pacific Symposium website. The Zoom video-conferencing platform also keeps a log of each attendee’s time in each meeting room.
Pacific Symposium is approved by NCCAOM. Florida may possibly accept NCCAOM-approved conference credits. Please contact the Florida acupuncture board for more information.
Certificate data for NCCAOM diplomates is uploaded by Pacific College within two (2) weeks after the event ends. You should receive an email notification from NCCAOM with a link to the conference certificate as soon as the data is uploaded. If you do not receive the notification, please check the NCCAOM certificate portal to see if the certificate is available there. Please contact NCCAOM if you need guidance using their new certificate portal.
If the certificate is not available in the NCCAOM portal, please place a ticket using the support form at the bottom of this page. Please note that only NCCAOM diplomates can access the NCCAOM portal.
California acupuncturists and other healthcare professionals who are eligible for continuing education credit will be able to download valid certificates (one per presentation) directly from the Pacific Symposium website immediately after the event ends.
