About the On-Demand Video Format

  • This course consists of six 1-hour videos, with a short quiz at the end of each unit. Each unit provides a dated certificate of completion after you pass the quiz.
  • You can watch the videos any time you wish, and you can take as long as you want to finish them. Your only deadline is your license renewal date.
  • Once you’ve purchased a course, it does not expire. Courses will remain available from your Account Dashboard, and you can rewatch them at any time.

About the quizzes

  • You have three chances to achieve the minimum passing score on the quiz. If you don’t pass on the first try, review your notes and rewatch the video, then try the quiz again.
  • If you are unsuccessful after three attempts, you will be blocked from completing that unit.
  • We automatically get notified when this happens. We will reset the quiz for you to have another attempt after you rewatch the video.
  • While you wait for this reset you can go on to a different unit in the course.

As a chiropractic x-ray tech, your license expires each year on your birthday. You are required to take 6 hours of C.E. credit each year in order to renew your license.

Non-chiropractic x-ray techs have a 2-year license interval, and do not have a continuing education requirement, but are welcome to take the course!

If you’ve taken the 48-hour introductory class within the past year, and you’ve had a birthday after you received your initial license, you need to take 6 hours of CE before your next birthday.
