Against PT practice dry needle without enough training and exam

Dry needling is a form of acupuncture, I against PT without enough training to practice Dry Needle, they need to pass NCCAOM exam. Even MD need to get 200 hours training if they want to practice Acupunture, do you think PT just get 60 hours enough? It will put the public in risk conditions!
