Why Recertify?
As the TACT 2 Trial continues, the practice and application of Chelation Therapy is rapidly evolving. We are understanding more about the multiple effects of EDTA in reducing metal burden and oxidant stress. Both the assessment and testing protocols have been updated based on epidemiologic data and clinical evidence for toxic metal exposures related to water contamination and metal-on-metal hip replacements.

Toxicant exposures are increasing and making sure that Chelation practice includes an understanding of nutrient sufficiency and the application of methylation genetics is crucial for safety and effective Chelation outcomes.

As the recognized leader in heavy metal detoxification/Chelation therapy education, ACAM works diligently to ensure our curriculum is robust, relevant and of the highest caliber. 
As such, ACAM published its much-anticipated Chelation Protocol in 2017, which is only available to CCT applicants. 

ACAM's CCT credential is the gold standard for Chelation therapy and the CCT designation is the highest designation achievable. ACAM receives hundreds of calls each year from patients seeking ACAM certified practitioners for their treatments. We invite you to renew your CCT for another seven years and rejoin the ranks of the elite CCT credentialed.

Step 1: Basic Chelation Webinar Series
 (Optional, but recommended)
The basic Chelation webinar series offers professionals the ability to study on their own time and grasp the essential elements
of Chelation. The multi-episode webinar series is available online for 24/7 access at your convenience.

In addition to the basic series, you will receive a second series by expert Jim Roberts, MD, and ACAM's Official Chelation Protocol.

Steps 2 & 3: Advanced Chelation Hands-on Practicum & Exam

Expert faculty include: Lyn Patrick, ND; Dot Merritt, MD; David Quig, PhD, Jim Roberts, MD
The Advanced Chelation Workshop and Practicum is the next step. This one-day update and review session will provide in-depth training at the necessary hands-on level by combining the information presented in the webinar with a full course of new material including metal toxicology, lead and other water contaminate updates as well as the IV Therapies practicum. This second step to the end-goal of certification is offered twice a year – once in the spring and once during the ACAM Annual Meeting in the fall.

Recertification Exam
Completion of the basic training webinar, combined with participation in one of the two hands-on Advanced Chelation Workshop & Practicum offered in 2018, result in ACAM’s exclusive and nationally-recognized Chelation Certification Therapist (CCT) designation.

Because of your prior certification, ACAM is offering an optional of two exclusive recertification packages:
  • Package 1 (Steps 1, 2 & 3): ACAM Member: $999  |   Non-Member: $1,249  OR
