Distance Education

Distance Education Modules are an easy way to complete your CPD requirements at home or work, any time day or night. 

Chiropractors are required by the Chiropractic Board of Australia to continually upgrade their professional knowledge and skills to ensure the contribution they make to healthcare is of the highest standard. 

For chiropractors the stipulated minimum level of Continuing Professional Development activity to maintain current registration with the Chiropractic Board of Australia is 25 hours over the 12 month registration period (1st December – 30th November) including a minimum of 12.5 hours of Formal Learning Activities (FLA) and 12.5 hours of either formal or informal activity. 

Chiropractors are required to maintain a portfolio demonstrating their compliance with CPD requirements and may be asked to provide evidence of such activity at the discretion of the Chiropractic Board of Australia through an auditing process.
