A Course Designed Specifically for Licensed D.C.s
Chiropractors participating in this course will have the opportunity learn passive and active physiotherapy principles and techniques. The purpose of this course is to allow currently practicing D.C.s who do not have the physiotherapy designation on their state license to fulfill the requirements to take the NBCE Physiotherapy exam or obtain the 120 hours of Physiotherapy required for the PT license designation (requirements vary by state). This course is didactic in nature and self-paced in an engaging virtual learning environment that allows for two-way communication with instructors and participants while offering the convenience of online coursework.
In 2015, we re-designed this course to be heavily virtual and eliminated the requirement for live in-person sessions. The new format fulfills the entire 120 hours of required coursework completely online.
Enrollment is continual and you can begin the coursework at any time. The coursework is composed of videos, PDF presentations, supporting articles and supplemental research, discussion forums, quizzes and final exams. Average time to complete the course can vary based on the amount of time practitioner can dedicate each week to coursework. Typical timeline of completion based upon 10hrs/week is approximately 12-14 weeks.
Conference calls or video conferencing with instructors is available upon request.
