This application is for the Options for Animals College of Animal Chiropractic’s Essentials in Animal Chiropractic Course. If taken consecutively, the course consists of five (5), four and one half (4½) day sessions, spread over a period of five to six (5-6) months or our 5 week session during the summer. Lunch will be provided Wednesday through Saturday during each module attended along with a welcome dinner during the Sacropelvic module.

At these sessions, the student will receive written notes and a minimum of 135 Hours of Lecture and a minimum of 75 Hours of Hands-On Laboratory Time. The student will be assigned to a faculty advisor that will personally coach the student throughout the course and for up to three months after the completion of the course. Coaching beyond this time period is available for an additional fee.

After successful completion of the course, the student will receive a certificate of completion. Options for Animals makes no guarantee as to career placement or career opportunities for any of its students that complete the course. The completion certificate does allow the student to attain further certification by the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association (AVCA; www.animalchiropractic.org; 918-784-2231) and/or the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association (IVCA; www.i-v-c-a.com). These certification examinations do include a separate fee. Please contact the associations directly for more information on these certifications and their fees and requirements.
