20:41:08:01. Continuing education courses. To be counted as continuing education, courses must meet the core curriculum requirements of the Council on Chiropractic Education as approved by the board annually. The board may also approve continuing education courses pursuant to § 20:41:08:04. Sponsors shall conduct approved courses with a certifying officer designated and present at all sessions. The officer shall, without advance notice, check attendance at least three times during each eight-hour block of instruction. The officer shall, within 15 days after the course completion, certify to the board secretary the names of all participants, hours in attendance, subject or subjects taught, name of sponsor, date and place of meeting, and names of all instructors.
The board further accepts courses by PACE Recognized Providers. The Providers are accredited by the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards Providers of Approved Continuing Education (FCLB PACE). The FCLB PACE approved programs satisfy the board's requirements for purpose of the license renewal process. Information can be obtained at the website referenced below. The board may continue to approve other non-FCLB PACE courses and also to deny FCLB PACE courses if deemed necessary.
