The nitty-gritty, down and dirty, get-it-done

 itinerary for motivated New DC’s.

 

An itinerary for newly licensed DC’s who wish to complete all of their first-year course requirements during FCA NE Regional Convention AND take advantage of business-related courses designed specifically to help YOU. Remember though, if you cannot attend all of the required courses this weekend, you can still supplement at another FCA event. FCA convention registration is complimentary for FCA member DC’s in their first year of licensure.

State Boards That Have Approved This Convention 

The FCA strives to make each convention convenient for chiropractors nationwide to attain clinical credit for their state, motivated by our Florida members who hold licensure in multiple states.  We submit the educational itinerary for each convention to over 45 states, in hopes that each state board will give Clinical credit for attending our lectures.  The link below will show the status of every state, showing if we applied for approval, if we have been approved or denied, as well as any specifications that accompany the approvals.

Scanning

How Badge Scanning Works at FCA CE Events

(Just Keep Scanning!) 

 

Effective April 1, 2008, the process of monitoring attendance at FCA CE events transitioned from a manual approach to an electronic time-stamp system of scanning bar coded attendee badges with Board-required photo ID verification. The scans that are collected during an event are your proof that you were attending specific sessions, on certain dates and at certain times. So, it is clearly to your benefit to scan whenever possible.
 
Your overall hours at an event are acquired by scanning your badge at Attendance Desk sessions (10 sessions will earn you the maximum of 20 hours for DCs per FCA CE event, 6 sessions for the maximum of 12 hours for CCPAs per FCA CE event). You MUST scan at the Attendance Desk! The Attendance Desk is "open" either before or after class sessions, so you can go to the Desk and not miss valuable class time.
 
Your hours for required topics are obtained by scanning in and out every time that you pass through the entrance to those class sessions (Record Keeping/Documentation, Ethics, Medical Errors, FL Laws & Rules, Risk Management, and Acupuncture Technique & Risk Mgmt sessions for DC's with AP Certification). As you scan or "clock" in and out of required topic sessions, the amount of time that you sit in those sessions is computed and replaces that same amount of your Attendance Desk clinical credit with the type of CEUs that are being presented in those sessions.
 
All time is calculated as whole hours since partial hours are not accepted by the Board. A small amount of time in each 50-minute CEU "hour" is built into the system so as to allow for a reasonable restroom break or to take phone calls. Abusing this break time, arriving late for class, or leaving early will adversely affect your credits. If you follow the schedule, you will have no reason to worry.
 
Use the DC/CCPA Quick Glance Planner provided for the event to plan your itinerary ahead of time. It contains the class and Attendance Desk schedule for the weekend. Classes that are scanned (required topics) are clearly marked. As you attend class sessions or scan at an Attendance Desk session, check the boxes beside those entries in the Planner and keep it as a reference until you receive your Certificate of Attendance in the mail within a couple of weeks of the event. Then, compare the credits on your certificate with your planner. Please pick up a current planner when you arrive at the event in case we have had unexpected changes in meeting rooms or speaker availability.
 
Relax and enjoy your Convention experience. Enhance your knowledge in your profession, network with fellow professionals, view current chiropractic tools and supplies in the Expo, see old friends and make new ones. Thank you for attending FCA events!
