We routinely apply to the chiropractic state or provincial boards for seminar approval in the state/province in which it occurs and the states/provinces directly surrounding it. Additional state or provincial board approvals may be requested by contacting us at 952-885-5446. A fee may apply and application deadlines may affect our ability to apply.
While noting your state or province of license on your registration and/or the attendance roster is helpful to us when reporting your hours, it does not ensure that the board application will or has been sent to that state/province. Northwestern is not liable for any expenses if approval is denied or a misunderstanding about approval occurs.

We are a NCBTMB and NCCAOM approved provider and apply to them for seminars specific to those professionals.

Every state and specialty board regulates continuing education hours differently, but Northwestern will send a copy of your CE hours earned to state and specialty boards that require information be sent directly from the school. It is your responsibility to understand your states or specialty boards specific rules and regulations.
In order for Northwestern to send or confirm your hours to your state licensing board or other specialty boards, you must sign where indicated on the roster or attendance card. Reports are sent to the boards prior to their deadlines. Exceptions are boards that require you to report your own hours, for those boards you will send a copy of your CE transcript which is mailed to you.
Please note, we have been asked by some state boards to inform you that approval of this course is not an acknowledgment or ruling that any methods that might be taught in this course are recognized and/or approved by the board as appropriate in practice.
