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.
Please contact NCCAOM if you need guidance using their new certificate portal.
If there any errors on your NCCAOM certificate, please place a ticket using the support form at the bottom of this page.
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 place a ticket using the support form at the bottom of this page so that we may unlock the form for you.
For certificates from 2019 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.
