Continuing Education Credit
I’m interested in learning the Pettibon Rehabilitation System, where do I start?
Brand new to Pettibon Rehabilitation or has it been a long time since your last Pettibon class? The Pettibon Institute recommends that you begin with the Online Courses. They provide you with the foundation of the Pettibon Rehabilitation System and how it can be incorporated in with your technique.
The online courses have the luxury of time. Smaller chunks of content are presented in-depth in a steady progression going from 'the what' and 'why' to 'how.' When you complete an online course's posttest and evaluation form, we send you a Certificate of Completion.
What's the process for getting CE hours?
We send a monthly report of doctors who have successfully completed the online courses to the coordinator at Palmer College and PACE (Providers of Approved Continuing Education) at the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards. The doctors' chiropractic regulatory boards are then informed by the CE providers. Not all boards accept online courses for CE hours and not all boards accept courses from Recognized PACE Providers. We have listed all the CE Re-licensure Requirements for the US and Canada so you can verify what your board accepts. Hours in this report are calculated based on time spent to complete a course up to the amount available.
How are multimedia components incorporated?
Because Fundamentals covers 'the what' and 'why' there are only a few audio and video clips. In X-ray Procedures, there are extensive audio clips of an instructor/Pettibon practitioner explaining how to set-up x-ray equipment, position patients, take, mark, and measure x-rays. In Clinic Protocols & Home Care, more than three hours of video clips demonstrate 'the how' of testing, exams, using instruments and rehabilitation equipment, mobilizations, etc.
The 5-Part Series takes all the original classes and chunks them into easy to follow and implement parts. They are full of audio, video clips, and PowerPoint material including tests.
By registering for an online course, you can learn The Pettibon Rehabilitation System, anywhere and at any time. All you need is high-speed connection to the Internet. Your computer/laptop should have a sound card and high-resolution graphics capability. Make sure your Internet browser is the latest version of Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox, please note: it does not work with Safari, iPads and iPhones at this time.
The online courses have reference material which has been formatted into documents that you can print. To be able to open those documents, you'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader software. You can download a free version of Adobe Reader at www.adobe.com.
For getting the most out of an online learning course, be sure that you're comfortable using your personal computer and the Internet, not easily distracted, and open to planning study times and sticking to them!
