ICSC Seminar Overview

The upper and lower extremity hands-on seminars provide the basic skills and knowledge for chiropractors who would like to obtain an International sports chiropractic certificate. Candidates completing the certification hands-on seminars and meeting the requirements of the e-Learning program, qualify to work as a volunteer at International games and events. 

Delivery of ICSC Hands-on Seminars
FICS are embracing and using the technology available to us.  We are offering the delivery of the upper and lower extremity courses using a hybrid method. The theory section will be via a live online forum, the month before the delivery of the face to face sessions.   

Theory virtual session comprises all functions related to the delivery of the theory section of the course. It will form the foundation knowledge of the course and must be attended prior to the candidate attending the face to face session.  A short quiz will be sent to the candidate on completion of this session, which will be recorded on their file for completion purposes.  

Face to Face sessions will comprise the learning materials, active and interactive, which involve students hands-on skills. These sessions allow for interaction between the students’ and the instructors, networking opportunities and in-class practice to refine skills learnt.  

Completion: Candidates must attend both the virtual and face to face sessions, as well as completed the post theory session quiz to be awarded completion of the seminar.  All candidates records will be kept by FICS for the awarding of the seminar completion certificate and the completion of the ICSC.

If you have any questions, please reach out to FICS admin via email: admin@ficsport.org

Virtual Seminar

Whether this is your first virtual seminar with FICS, or you have been to a seminar before, we look forward to welcoming you and having a fun couple of days learning new skills. The virtual session will cover the theory part of the module and will be followed up with the face to face seminar. Completion of both the virtual and face to face is required to be issued the completion of the seminar.

At the end of the virtual session, candidates are sent a short question and answer quiz to fill in and return. These quizzes are designed to test your understanding of the materials covered during the sessions and will be a requirement of completion of the seminar material covered.  More information about this process will be explained after you register for the seminar.  The sessions are recorded and made available to participants who have attended after the submission of the post-session quiz is returned. 

Candidates login details, times you logged in and out will be recorded as part of the issue of completion for this session. Your registration name MUST match your computer login name to be admitted to the session.

Planning your time:

One of the most difficult things with virtual seminars is being behind a computer instead of sitting in front of people as if you were at a seminar in person. Preparing your time is important to ensure you get the most out of these sessions. We have listed a couple of tips below.

  • Make sure you read the schedule so you can plan your time and check your time zone. All times will be listed in the time zone of the country hosting the seminar and have a UTC reference added. (UTC +1)
  • You need to ensure you dedicate the time to the seminar, away from distractions.
  • Consider picking a nice quiet place away from distractions which may pull your attention elsewhere.
  • If you are a student, you may want to consider meeting up with a classmate and undertake the session together
  • Make sure you have a quiet environment. 
  • Make sure you use the breaks to get up and move around and refresh before the next session.

Social media during or after the seminar:

FICS would like to acknowledge our seminar sponsors for their support, as their sponsorship allows us to provide members with the resources they need at both games and seminars. One of the great ways to acknowledge sponsors is by tagging them in social media when posting photos and updates from your attendance at the event.  We kindly ask you to acknowledge our sponsors when posting on your social media platforms at any FICS event via the following handles and hashtags:

    The global coronavirus19 outbreak changed the way we think about face to face seminars.  The delivery of the upper and lower extremity seminars will include a virtual presentation one month before the face-to-face session to cover the theory and prepare students for a fully hands-on practical seminar. We look forward to working with all our partners and NCSC to ensure we can continue to raise the level of available seminars held making it more accessible for doctors to undertake this learning.
