Pediatric Certification


ICPA offers postgraduate chiropractic education pertaining to the care of children and pregnant women. 

The ICPA Pediatric Certification Program is a comprehensive 200-hour program consisting of 20 course offerings (60 hours in-person required for US DCs). It is designed to expand professional ability in adjusting techniques, evaluation, and assessment of different stages of development: from pregnancy, birth, infancy throughout childhood.

ICPA seminars are taught from the salutogenic perspective which focuses on strategies, environments and lifestyle choices that empower individuals to experience the full spectrum of life. All techniques taught in the Certification Program are those currently taught at chiropractic colleges and are adapted for children and pregnant patients. 

Upon successful completion, chiropractors receive Certification by the Academy Council of Chiropractic Pediatrics (CACCP).

"I am glad that I took a class. Once I took one class I was hooked and had to do the entire program. The extra information I learned, that was not taught in chiropractic school, helps me to be a better doctor every day to my patients. I am now better able to explain the importance of chiropractic for children and have gained so much more confidence in my chiropractic skills."

"The ICPA Certification Program was a rewarding educational program that gave me the training needed to support my passion in caring for infants, children and their mothers. I would highly recommend the program to anyone considering enhancing this portion of their skills."

"The certification is a must for any chiropractor or chiropractic student who wants to better serve the pediatric population. The material is all research-based and very valuable for any chiropractor who wants to see more kids and will also add several tools to your toolbox that will help an established chiropractor already seeing kids. I left each seminar fired-up and ready to serve at a greater capacity."
