Our course is recognised by the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board (BAAB), the educational arm of the British Acupuncture Council and The International College of Oriental Medicine has been accredited by them since 1997. The BAAB was established to approve training programmes and to maintain and monitor rigorous academic and institutional standards within acupuncture training.
British Acupuncture Accreditation Board (BAAB)
The College was re-accredited by the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board in 2006, and has recently been fully re-accredited in April 2016. We work closely with the BAAB in order not just to enhance and further course development but to ensure that we are offering our students the best professional training possible.
