Washington State Board of Chiropractic Examiners License Requirements consist of 25 hours of continuing education per year. 12 hours may be taken online. All hours must be completed by the licensee’s birthday each year.
In Washington, it is illegal to practice without a valid license, so it is best to complete these hours early.
As part of continuing education in Washington, three hours of suicide screening and referral from a qualified suicide prevention training program must be completed by all chiropractors renewing their licenses. These hours count towards meeting the continuing education requirements. (This only has to be taken after a chiropractor’s first full continuing education reporting period after initial licensure.)
