In addition to our world-renowned acupuncture training, we offer regular high-quality Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine CPD training courses throughout the year. Before booking any of the events listed below, 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.
