News update 31 Janaury 2019
Dear FICS Members, current ICCSP Students and future ICCSP Students.
The brand-new International Sports Chiropractic Certificate program is well under its way in redevelopment. FICS purposely drives to establish the highest quality of sports chiropractic, Internationally. A key component to this success is to establish quality International sports chiropractors, representing FICS.
The new ICCSP is on the tail-end of it’s rebuild. Multiple modules are ready to be launched and the process has been moving forward steadily. The IT world is so advanced yet so complicated, it has lended itself to offer an enhanced certificate program yet the complexity of it has also caused some unexpected delays. There have been a couple of technical difficulties as one can imagine to host these new modules and seamlessly take registrations. But these difficulties are on-the mend and we anticipate taking new registrations, soon.
We are will be launching a new secure payment gateway which will allow for payment at the time of registration, which will reduce the delays in students gaining access to the modules. Specifically, we anticipate taking registrations very soon. We also anticipate that nearly the entire program will be ready by March or April 2019.
We have a new landing site for FICS members to launch their new International certificate program which needs to be well tested over the next few weeks. We anticipate launching the landing page and the start of our completed modules shortly. We will certainly keep you updated as developments occur.
FICS is hosting their annual conference in Berlin, 16-19 March 2019. We are optimistic and excited to formally launch the international sports chiropractic certificate program during this event. A large majority of the new international certificate program will be completed.
This will allow our FICS member and international sports chiropractic certificate students to be well on, his/her way towards becoming an international sports chiropractor.
Frequently asked questions:
New Registration for the ICCSP Program
Please note that we ARE NOT taking any new registrations into the current ICCSP program. The new program is not far away and will be open for registrations soon.
For the students that are currently completing the online module, we will gladly accept you into the new online program.
If you wish to receive advanced standing for the courses you already completed, simply inform FICS administration. As part of the launch we will be reaching out to the students wishing to transfer to the new program with instructions on what is required, and we will guide you through the requirements to complete the online portion, using the new curriculum.
If you wish to take the entire online program, even though you have completed some of the old online content, you’re welcome to take the entire program.
There have also been some questions about the three-year deadline.
We know that some of you are trying very hard to keep to this schedule. We do appreciate your efforts. If an extension is needed, an extension can be applied for to the FICS administration and we will consider an extension on an individual basis.
There has been a number of questions in regards to the cost of the program.
We do not anticipate a major increase in the cost of this program and will be in a better position to update our students on this once the program is ready to launch.
Thank you for your patience
In closing, FICS and the Education Commission are excited for the new program and its upcoming launch! Again, we appreciate your understanding of the complexity of rebuilding such a massive project. It’s only betters FICS and improves our position in sports, worldwide.
