Continuing education (CE), also known as CPD/CEU is required for all Sports Chiropractors working as part of a team at international games. Gaining approval for CE credits for your local chiropractic license will depend on your regulatory board or college’s discretion. All courses come with a certificate of completion listing the hours of learning. Many National Council Sports Chiropractors (NCSC) are working with their local governing body to gain recognition of FICS seminars and courses. We would encourage you to contact your local NCSC as the first point of contact to enquire what the process is within your country. Some countries have a self-assessment requirement and will provide you with the necessary application to fill in to apply for CE credits.
