Licensure and Certification Upon Graduation

California Acupuncture Boards

Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine is approved by the California Acupuncture Board and graduates of the MTOM program are eligible to sit for the California Acupuncture Licensing Examination. For licensure information, contact:

State of California Acupuncture Board
1747 N. Market Blvd, Suite 180
Sacramento, CA 95834
Phone: (916) 515-5200
Website: www.acupuncture.ca.gov

NOTE: Any applicant who has been convicted of a felony (in California or any other state) should first contact the California Acupuncture Board to ensure that they will be permitted to sit for licensure after graduation from Emperor’s College. This is a legal matter between the State of California (or any other state) and the potential applicant as states have legal authority over who is qualified to sit for licensure as a health care provider. Emperor’s College has no ability to influence the state’s decision but we do not want to see a student complete four years of training only to be denied the opportunity to sit for licensure. Applicants in this situation should immediately contact the California Acupuncture Board at: www.acupuncture.ca.gov.
