New 1-time animal chiropractic course previously recorded - Saturday, October 6, 2018.
Per CBCE policy - only courses approved by the Colorado State Veterinarian's will fulfill this 1-time requirement. You must successfully pass a proficiency test for the future online course to fulfill the 1-time requirement if you are taking the course online with questions approved by the Colorado State Veterinarian's office.
4 CEs - Large animal zoonotic, contagious & infectious disease course
4 CEs - Small animal zoonotic, contagious & infectious disease course
1 CEs - Animal Chiropractic Jurisprudence
This course will satisfy the 1-time, 1-hour jurisprudence course requirement and 1-time 8-hour zoonotic, contagious and infectious disease course which will allow for direct access to dogs and equids per SB18-239.
This course alone does not qualify or certify you to perform animal chiropractic in the state of Colorado. This course is in addition to the requirements as outlined in CRS 12-33-127.
Requirements to perform animal chiropractic include: 210 hours of additional training by 1 of 5 approved schools that has already been approved by both the Colorado Board of Chiropractic Examiners and the State Board of Veterinarian Medicine.
Direct access to dogs and equids is only allowed once the 210 hours, 1-time 1-hour jurisprudence course and 1-time 8-hour zoonotic, contagious and infectious disease courses are completed and successfully passed.
If you have NOT completed the 210-hour requirement to perform animal chiropractic as outlined by the CBCE, this course DOES NOT APPLY towards your yearly 15-hour continuing education requirement by the state of Colorado for human chiropractic, as this course would technically be outside of your scope of practice.
If you HAVE completed the 210-hour requirement to perform animal chiropractic, this course DOES count towards your 20-hours of continuing education per license period specific to ANIMAL CHIROPRACTIC.
