In brief: Multiple sources

This depends on the type of practitioner, and the credentials s/he has.
If it's an md, do, or nd, there are state licensing boards for them. Acupuncturists have a certifying board: http://www.Nccaom.Org/ homeopaths have http://www.Homeopathicdirectory.Com/ it's important to know that not all qualified practitioners choose to take these exams -- so ask the practitioner about his/her training.
