Professional Development

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.

Please note that certificates of attendance can only be issued for courses either attended live online or in person at the college.

Please do email us with any queries about our CPD events: [email protected]

Our CPD courses are currently being held online, and we are starting to announce new dates for courses at the college to be held later in 2021. If you would like to be notified when booking opens for new courses please sign up to our monthly newsletter at the bottom of this page.

We are always keen to hear your ideas for CPD course topics at ICOM. If you would like to make a suggestion, please email [email protected]
