Beginning in the Spring of 2021, the AOPP started researching the possible accreditation of our certification programs and the creation of an accredited PEMF credential. It is with great pleasure that I announce, the AOPP has made the commitment necessary to apply for the very first and only accredited PEMF credential through the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA).
The NCCA is an elite credentialing accreditor in the US. For example, they accredit certification programs from the following, among hundreds of others:
Accreditation of our certification programs means that a third party has set specific business and ethical standards by which to review all components of a certifying agency. To earn accreditation, we must make several changes which you will see in the coming months. Gaining accreditation for a newly created credential takes several months, 24 at a minimum. Continued support from our current membership will greatly assist with this process. As we prepare for the accreditation application, we will be conducting required job analysis surveys and interviewing practitioners. We are grateful for your support and hope you will continue to grow with the AOPP.
Earning this accreditation and creating an official PEMF credential will help advance the credibility of the industry and the profession. The goal of accrediting a PEMF credential is to set standards for PEMF therapy practitioners. These standards help to ensure the safety of the public and proper, accurate education of PEMF professionals. Additionally, it lends integrity to the practice, the profession, and the definition of what it means to be a PEMF professional. Your continued support is needed and much appreciated!
