The New Zealand Register of Acupuncturists and the New Zealand Qualifications Authority have signed a Memorandum of Understanding and agreed to work together in ensuring that the highest standartds of education are met and maintained in the fields of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.

Recognising the increasing acceptance of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in New Zealand and ensuring that all those who are providing such treatment meet the highest of educational standards were the main reasons behind the New Zealand Register of Acupuncturists and the New Zealand Qualifications Authority signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two organisations. 

The document was signed in the NZQA offices last Friday by NZRA President, Paddy McBride, and NZQA Chief Executive, Karen Poutasi. The MoU outlines the ways in which the two organisations will continue to work together in the monitoring of educational programmes, both under graduate and post graduate, to ensure quality and consistency regardless of the educational institution involved.

Through working together, NZRA and NZQA aim to ensure that all students, providers and the general public are kept well informed and are assured that the highest of standards are established and maintained.
