The National Certification Commission for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) is the national accrediting body for the practice of acupuncture and oriental medicine.  The NCCAOM establishes minimum standards of professional competency, ethics, and safety for AOM practitioners; produces and administers AOM board exams; advocates for AOM practitioners and the profession; and, works with state and national governmental leadership to ensure that safe, effective, and accessible AOM is available for all people.


SDAOMA utilizes the NCCAOM standards to verify the professionalism, ethics, and competency of South Dakota acupuncturists.  Professional members must obtain and maintain NCCAOM board certification.  Patients and clients can rest assured that SDAOMA professional member practitioners are legitimately trained, ethical, and professional.
