Gain Valuable Skills and Credentials

The AAQM, a division of Quantafoods Association, offers national credentialing to encourage continuing professional growth and promote cooperation among the various disciplines of health care. The QFA-AAQM uses the American Naturopathic Medical Certification and Accreditation Board (ANMCB) that since 1978 has been providing national credentialing to thousands of natural health care professionals with the following unique benefits:

  • Clinical Competence. An educational and testing process is provided that promotes high standards of ethics and competence among its certified members, maintained through required continuing education (CE). CE assures that ANMCB-certified professionals meet specific standards of education and experience and are committed to a high level of ethical practice, staying current with the latest AAQM-QFA research.
  • Recognition & Professional Malpractice Insurance Eligibility. You receive a certificate that indicates your credentials and certification. As such, you position yourself to play a valuable role in meeting the demand for qualified practitioners in the health care field. Plus, certification puts you in a class with other certified practitioners, making you eligible to apply for malpractice insurance.
  • Trademark & Authenticity. Our trademarks and the QFA-AAQM offer you protection for the services you provide. Our marks on Quorum Nutrition™ and Quantum Medicine™ are exclusively for our certified practitioners.
  • Nationally Established Certification Board. The ANMCB is the national certification board for naturopathy in the USA. As such, the certification they offer provides a primary means to demonstrate expertise, enhance visibility, and foster credibility in the eyes of the employers, clients, and peers. The ANMCB supports the standards, scope of practice and code of ethics necessary for the acceptable practice of nutrition and naturopathic medicine as distinct approaches to health and wellness. Certification demonstrates a level of skill and knowledge the meets a national standard. And, ANMCB credentialing rigorously strives to meet national accreditation standards set forth by both the US Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
