You are here:
You must complete 12 hours of initial training, including eight (8) hours of lecture and four (4) hours of hands-on training.
The lecture training must follow this link: Board's training curriculum.
The hands-on training must cover some information in each of hydrotherapy, electrotherapy and physiotherapy.
There are approved trainers (Check this LIST), offering live courses and online courses; however, if employed by a chiropractic clinic, that doctor may provide the necessary training. See DC Guidelines below.
Once you finish a course/program, you should receive a certificate of completion which you will submit with your application packet.
All applicants for chiropractic assistant certification must be fingerprinted, even if recently printed for another Oregon license or certificate. If you are a chiropractic student and you have already made application with this Board for your DC license, you do not need to be fingerprinted a second time for the CA application, or pay the $41.25 with your initial assistant application. Notify board staff.
* $41.25 of your initial application fees covers the cost of the background report, not the actual fingerprinting.
Felony convictions and a few other serious charges, arrests or convictions will cause the application to be reviewed by the full board; this will extend the application process significantly.
Renewal is annual. Board staff will email the "renewal notice" approximately 45 days prior to your renewal date (last day of birth month). The notice will remind you of your education requirements, and provide a link to the online renewal site (also provided below).
Assistant renewal fee: $75
Continuing Education hours: Six (6) due and two of those hours must be training on taking vitals. Refer to the appropriate section on the Continuing Education page (link below) for more information.
