On June 15, 2022, the Kentucky Board of Chiropractic Examiners (KBCE) released the following memo addressing continuing education requirements. The KAC is providing further clarification on the memo in an effort to clear up any remaining confusion.
On January 27, 2022, the KBCE initially released a memo which allowed for all 12 continuing education hours to be obtained 100% online for the March 2023 renewal. The KBCE received input from their legal team that was not the intent of the bill that ended the State of Emergency. Subsequently, the KBCE had an emergency meeting on June 3, 2022, which discussed the allowance of all 12 CE hours to be obtained 100% online. It was determined that their original memo was incorrect, and their January 27, 2022 memo was essentially rescinded.
As of the date of this article, per the June 15, 2022 memo – for the March 2023 renewal for chiropractors, the continuing education requirement goes back to the current way statute is written. This allows for 6 continuing education hours to be obtained online and 6 continuing education hours to be obtained in-person. There is no in-state requirement for the in-person hours for general education.
There is nothing that prohibits a chiropractor from obtaining all 12 hours in-person, however only 6 continuing education hours may be obtained online for the March 2023 renewal period.
Peer Reviewers – As of the date of this article, all 6-hours must be obtained in-person in the state of Kentucky for Peer Reviewers for the June 2023 renewal.
We will notify KAC members of any updates/changes to any continuing education requirements moving forward.
