Do I need an ICSC to participate on a FICS sports chiropractic team at an international event? Yes, you need to have an ICSC and be a member of FICS to be selected for a FICS team. This is necessary to assure the games organizers and the athletes that all doctors on the team are properly qualified and experienced, and to promote the professionalism and future of sports chiropractic.

Why was there a price increase from 1 October 2019 for FICS Members?
The price increase was representative of the newly designed program and lends itself to the improved quality and current information in the ICSC program. FICS has made efforts to keep our costs at an affordable rate while limiting annual increases. It is not uncommon to see tuition costs increase at rates of 2%-10% per year (https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2017/10/25/tuition-and-fees-still-rising-faster-aid-college-board-report-shows). FICS had not increased the price of the e-learning courses since 2010 and this 25% increase falls in that lower range (2.5% per year). FICS wants to provide the highest quality and most current sports chiropractic information to our members and train high-quality doctors.
