In order to register for individual Sports Medicine Acupuncture (SMA) online courses and “live-gathering” intensive courses, the licensed practitioner must understand and agree to the following statements:
The registrant is currently licensed to practice acupuncture in their country, state or providence. Or, the registrant is currently in an accredited traditional Chinese medicine college or university.
The registrant is proficient at traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) nomenclature, theories (qi, blood, body fluids, organs and channels) and differential diagnosis. The SMA educational content is rooted in TCM and integrated with western biomedical paradigms. It is recommended the registrant has a strong background in TCM in order to gain the best value of these educational courses.
The registrant is aware that SMA online classes can be taken individually or collectively for Sports Medicine Acupuncture certification (SMAC).
For SMAC, successful completion of “live-gathering” classes (post-Covid) will be required and these classes will be held in the United States. The dates and location of the “live-gathering” classes will be announced in the near future. This course is for licensed acupuncturists.
The registrant enrolled in the SMAC program will be required to complete online examinations after the completion of each module and a final practical exam after completion of the SMAC program. The registrant not enrolled in the certification program does not need to complete any online examinations.

MODULES III & IV have been rescheduled due to COVID 19 regulations — see updated dates below!
As we all find our way through this ever-challenging and uncertain time, AcuSport Education has introduced NEW offerings for Sports Medicine Acupuncture education. We have made the final decision to offer the SMAC program in two ways: as both an online webinar as well as the complete SMAC program as an in-person, live-gathering event post-COVID.
Due to COVID-19, the current 2019-2020 SMAC Program was paused in March. The program is only halfway completed and we still need to complete Module III and Module IV. To facilitate continued learning in a safe way, we will offer the first section of Module III this October as online courses.
Due to the uncertain nature of this pandemic, we have also decided to postpone the Assessment & Treatment of Lower Extremity Injuries course, which is an in person, live-gathering course scheduled for January 26-29, 2021. The PACE III course, which was offered as a live class, will now be presented as an online webinar and continue as scheduled January 30-31, 2021.
Similarly, the first part of the Module IV schedule in March 2021 will also be offered as online courses, and the Assessment and Treatment of Neck, Shoulder and Upper Extremity injuries will be scheduled post-COVID.
When registering, please select either:
Individual classes within a Module (when not taking all classes in that Module)
Entire Module (when taking all classes in a Module, but not the whole program)
Entire SMAC Program (when signing up for the whole program and paying in full)
SMAC Payment Plan (when signing up for the whole program and paying monthly)
Note: After submitting your registration, if you do not receive a Registration-Pending email from AcuSport Education within 5 minutes, due to increased security, please check your spam folder and add us to your contacts.
