  • If an applicant for initial certification, prior to March 1, 2018, has verified employment of 2000-hours as a chiropractic assistant between August 1, 2014 - August 1, 2017, they may qualify for ND certification without meeting the coursework (education) requirement of the FCLB program.  However, they must successfully pass the FCLB examination requirement in order to apply for certification in ND. The employer will be required to verify their employment hours via attestation during the examination registration.
  • Applicants who are certified in other jurisdictions, may apply for ND certification.  The applicant must provide evidence satisfactory to the board that the applicant:
    • Has current practice privilege in good standing as a Certified Chiropractic Clinical Assistant or equivalent granted by at least one jurisdiction whose requirements (education & examination) are similar to or greater than the requirements of this board; and
    • Has presented to the board current documentation that any practice privilege granted by another jurisdiction as a Certified Chiropractic Clinical Assistant or equivalent has not been suspended, revoked, or otherwise restricted for any reason except non-renewal.
  • Certification is not required for individuals who solely perform administrative activities of a non-clinical nature.
