On March 22, 2020, Governor Kim Reynolds issued a Proclamation of Emergency Disaster. In this Proclamation, Governor Reynolds temporarily suspended a number of regulatory provisions applicable to a number of professions, including those professions regulated by the Board of Chiropractic. The Proclamation eases administrative rules relating to renewal of licenses, continuing education, and background checks. The suspension of rules identified in the Proclamation is effective through April 16, 2020, unless the Governor terminates or extends the Proclamation.

As required in the Proclamation, the Board of Chiropractic issues this guidance relating to the temporary suspension of administrative rules in these areas: 
License Renewal 
Your license is not scheduled to expire until June 30, 2020. The Board does not anticipate the Proclamation having an impact on your license renewal. In the event the Proclamation is extended in a manner that does impact your license renewal, the Board will send additional information at that time. 
Continuing Education 
Any Board rules that require you to complete any continuing education in-person are waived for the next license renewal. 
To the extent possible, you are encouraged to take distance education courses and try to meet all continuing education requirements in accordance with your renewal deadline. There is currently no limit on the number of continuing education hours that may be obtained through distance education.

The guidance may be found here .

As a reminder, Mandatory Reporting CE requirements can only be taken through the Department of Human Services Mandatory Reporter Information. ICS offers online CE opportunities for many courses and also offers the required hours for Iowa Code and Professional Boundaries. Please refer to the links found under the EDUCATION tab . 

Due to the cancellation of the 2020 ICS Annual Convention, ICS is considering additional options for online continuing education opportunities. Stay tuned and connected to ICS!
