Course Description

Event Outline

This hands-on International Federation of Sports Chiropractic (FICS) seminar, organised in partnership with Royal College of Chiropractors Sports Faculty (the UK’s NCSC), can be undertaken as a stand-alone CPD event by any chiropractor or final year chiropractic student who is serious about becoming a great sports practitioner and getting the best results for their patients.
This seminar meets one of the ‘hands-on seminar’ requirements of the FICS International Certificate in Sports Chiropractic (ICSC) and the minimum standard for those wishing to develop the competencies required in sports chiropractic to serve at official FICS international events. To learn more about the ICSC, please visit FICS. Note that achievement of the ICSC, of which this seminar is part, also meets many of the core requirements of full membership of the Royal College of Chiropractors Sports Faculty [MRCC (Sport)].

The programme (22 hours of theory and practical workshops) incorporates FICS’ renewed ICSC curriculum and includes a range of lectures with a sports chiropractic focus, although relevant information for general chiropractic practice is included.

Programme Outline

Participants will be connected to the theory part of this course before the face-to-face seminar. The participant completes the theory as online learning and consists of five sections each two hours. The theory MUST be completed prior to attending the face-to-face practicum session.
