AACP Acupuncture Foundation Course
Membership of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP) is open to UK Chartered Physiotherapists with 300 hours of acupuncture training. Membership of AACP is also open to physiotherapists practising overseas who have a qualification equivalent to that of Chartered Physiotherapist and who have undergone the required training.

The 300 hour AACP (accredited) Foundation Course is the usual route for Physiotherapists to gain membership to the AACP. It includes 6 days of contact teaching and is usually taught in several modules over a period of about six to eight weeks.
Delegates are given course work to do between the course parts, including the preparation of case studies and it is essential that delegates are able to practise acupuncture within a clinical setting between the course parts, or they will not be able to complete the case studies and will not pass the course.
Delegates on these courses must be a member of both the CSP and HCPC. One year of AACP membership is included in the course fee of an AACP (accredited) Foundtion Course.

If you have successfully completed a NON-AACP accredited acupuncture foundation course or a University acupuncture course in the recent past, then an Admission Process is the easiest route to membership of the AACP; during an Admissions Process your acupuncture skills will be assessed by one of our Tutors; this process will take up to two hours during which your theoretical knowledge and practical skills will be assessed. The process costs £95 and includes one year’s full membership of the AACP.
