The Renewal Notice & CE Affidavit
The OBCE mails the Chiropractic Assistant Renewal Notice & Affidavit
to CAs by June 1
EACH year. By default, the Notice is mailed to the last-known employment address; otherwise, if none is on file, it is mailed to the CA's home address.
The Notice is an "Invoice to Pay" the $50 renewal fee to the OBCE; and an affidavit that the CA has completed the required hours of Continuing Education. The CA must sign the Affidavit prior to returning it and the payment to the OBCE
IF you misplace the Renewal Notice &Affidavit that was mailed to you, or you did not receive it all, please download the form here: Renewal Notice for CAs. Continuing Education - SIX HOURS required
Remember, continuing education should be completed between August 1 (last year) and July 31 (this year). Do NOT wait until you receive your Renewal Notice & CE Affidavit to start looking for qualified seminars. CAs who licensed THIS YEAR between March 1 and May 31 are exempt from the CE requirement and their renewal notice will reflect this exemption; the $50 fee is still due!
ALWAYS get documentation verifying that you attended/completed the CE activity from the sponsor of the program.
Use the OBCE's website to find continuing education options
throughout the year. As noted on the site, the programs listed are not exclusive; if you find another program that interests you, feel free to contact the OBCE to find out if the program qualifies for CE credit (or read the CE Oregon
administrative rule 811-015-0025
