Auricular Acu-Technician (AAT) Trainings
Note: Each state has its own laws governing the use of 5NP. Click here to research your own state’s regulations.
POCA’s AAT training is designed to meet previously established training standards sometimes described in state laws or regulations as “NADA or equivalent.” Completion of POCA’s AAT training does not guarantee that you will be able to practice legally in your state and each trainee is responsible to research the requirements of the state they intend to practice in.
