Course Organisation

Hosting a Foundation Course

AACP is keen for its members to have access to good quality courses; Foundation Courses, but also training courses where delegates can learn new skills on which they are assessed by the tutor. Such courses may be aggregated to advanced Membership of AACP.

There are many courses advertised on this website, but if anyone would like to host a Foundation Course at their hospital or clinic, an AACP approved tutor can come and teach. The AACP can organise the whole course for you. Please contact for further details.

In either case, you will require a venue with the following facilities:

  • A room suitable to hold the delegates and equipment as detailed below – 15 delegates maximum for one tutor
  • When outside the NHS, a local authority licence for Acupuncture practice is also required
  • Plinths – no more than 3 delegates to a plinth
  • Sharps boxes and the means for their disposal
  • Suitable hand washing facilities
  • Cotton wool swabs and the means for their disposal
  • Needles. For courses run by AACP approved tutors these will usually be sponsored by one of the major needle suppliers.
  • A PowerPoint projector and suitable projection area
  • Convenient refreshment and lunch facilities – these are essential for all Acupuncture courses.
