Chiro Assistants

Exceed Expectations with ICSonline for Iowa CA's!

Looking for Passive and/or Active care training? We’ve got you covered at ICSonline for a fraction of the cost of other programs. In the spirit of patient protection, risk management, and educational excellence, our CA programs cover a wide variety of physiotherapy topics and exceed the minimum requirements set forth by the Iowa Chiropractic Board.

  • Courses are available 24/7.
  • CA’s can work at their own pace.
  • 12 hours of convenient online programming includes a robust note packet that can be downloaded/printed for off-line study.
  • 6 hours of supervised study is made easy with a packet emailed to the supervising DC containing scenarios/main points, and includes a pre-made attestation form to be signed/faxed for records.
  • A total of 18 hours in each program costs only $169 and a portion of every registration goes directly back to the ICS to aid in our good work to support the best interests of Iowa DC’s.
  • YES! These programs contain more hours than the board requires (18 vs.12), but we believe it helps achieve a solid minimum standard of competency similar to nationally credentialled CA's and we don't charge you for those extra hours.
  • Bonus: Aside from gaining the extra hours without a fee, with the 18 hours provided in Passive Care at ICSonline, CA’s are only a few hours away from meeting the national training requirement for FCLB’s CCCA testing and credential. (Iowa does not currently require this status…but if it is adopted our CA’s will be poised and ready for national testing with an additional short course that ICS will make available.) ICS is poised and ready to serve your possible future needs.
