PACE Approval for CUKC’s Continuing Education Programs

CUKC became a Providers of Approved Continued Education (PACE) Recognized Provider for continuing education by the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards (FCLB) in 2021. PACE is the signature program of FCLB. 

We had to meet 25 different criteria — including appropriate qualifications of staff and faculty and appropriate course content, assessment, and evaluation — to earn PACE status.  

Because we are a PACE provider, our continuing education program can serve 32 states, as well as Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and Nova Scotia. 

In addition to being a PACE provider, CUKC also submits courses for CE approval to individual state boards who do not accept PACE.
