State Licensing Requirements List

Although a majority of states require the NCCAOM examination or certification, each state regulatory board carries unique requirements for licensure. As a service to our Diplomates and candidates, a table of requirements for each state can be viewed clicking the "View Website" link for each state. In addition, this table provides the contact list for each state regulatory agency. Although NCCAOM regularly updates the information contained in table, the NCCAOM does not guarantee the accuracy of the information. State rules and regulations are subject to change; therefore, you should always confirm current requirements for licensure with your state board.
