Professional Development

We aim to produce high quality Acupuncture CPD opportunities for all acupuncturists, not just for those who qualified at our College. Professional and personal development is seen as a life-long learning process and we encourage students and graduates to take responsibility for their own independent learning wherever appropriate. Learning does not stop as you graduate – as acupuncture practitioners it is important to stay up to date and to enhance your skills and knowledge as your experience deepens.

Before booking any of the listed events, please check the Entry Requirements for each CPD. 

For Practical Acupuncture Courses evidence of your qualification is required. Students of a recognised acupuncture course in their final year of study can sometimes participate in practical CPDs, having had hours of practice in clinic and with the understanding that they will not be allowed to use some of the techniques learnt until registered and appropriately insured. Please email us with any queries about our CPD events: [email protected]
