We welcome trainee acupuncturists into the association to allow them to access appropriate benefits to support their clinical practice as they work towards their full qualification. The membership option is available to trainees who are in the process of completing an AACP foundation course.
Accredited membership is the next step for registered members who have successfully completed their foundation course. Gaining AACP accreditation via the AACP foundation course demonstrates to clients and employers that you have achieved high standards of knowledge, experience and development and have been trained to a recognised standard in the safe practice of Western Medical Acupuncture.
Retired membership is for AACP members who have completely retired from clinical practice, do not have any outstanding complaints and/or sanctions and who have previously paid the annual membership fee. Retired members may continue this membership for as long as they wish to.
Non-Practicing membership is available to those that wish to stay abreast of the latest developments in acupuncture but are not actively practicing. This membership option is only available for a one-year period and is typically used for periods such as maternity leave or to bridge the gap between career moves.
