Assessment of formal learning activities (CPD)

The Board’s CPD guidelines require chiropractors’ formal learning activities to be assessed and approved by a Board-approved body (including quantum of hours). The Board has approved the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia (National) Limited (CAAN) and the Chiropractic and Osteopathic College of Australasia (COCA) as the approved bodies to assess and approve formal learning activities for CPD from 1 October 2010.

The Board has now approved the criteria that CAAN and COCA will use to assess formal learning activities. Organisations should approach CAAN or COCA directly for assessment of the formal learning activities they provide.
