TX Renewal Requirements

As of September 2018 Acupuncturist Registration/Renewal will begin the process of renewing biennially (every 2 years).

In order to stagger the roll out of the biennial renewals, all licensed Acupuncturists are being separated out into 2 groups. Licenses ending with an even number will register for 2 years in 2018. Licenses ending with an odd number will register for one year in 2018 and then register for two years in 2019. Once the roll out is complete, even license numbers will continue to renew in even years, and odd license numbers will renew in odd years.

For those who renew for one year in 2018:

Acupuncturists need to complete at least 17 hours of continuing acupuncture education every 12 months. CAE hours should be counted from December 1 - November 30. The Approved Courses List gives four types of courses: General, Herbal, Ethics, Practice Management/General and Biomedicine as well as whether the course is offered as a live lecture, distance learning or the internet.

For those who renew for 2 years in 2018 (first round of biennial renewals):

Moving forward acupuncturists will need to complete at least 34 hours of continuing acupuncture education every 24 months. CAE hours should be counted from December 1 2018 - November 30 2020. The Approved Courses List gives four types of courses: General, Herbal, Ethics, Practice Management/General and Biomedicine as well as whether the course is offered as a live lecture, distance learning or the internet.
