Do I have to be a POCA member to do this training?
Yes. Joining POCA at the Punk/Provider membership tier ($50/yr) is a requirement for completing the AAT certification process. We strongly recommend that all trainees join POCA when they register for the AAT training in order to streamline the process. Your annual dues support POCA’s mission, future AAT trainings, expanding access, and legislative advocacy.
POCA, or The People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture, is a non-profit organization that sponsors AAT trainings across North America as part of its mission to support affordable and accessible acupuncture. Certified AATs, AATs in training and AAT trainers stay connected via POCA’s monthly newsletter, website, virtual and in-person organizing and events.
