This seminar is open to Chiropractors and Chiropractic students only. Students who are actively enrolled in a course of study leading to a chiropractic qualification may take the entire course. However, one of the seven courses must be taken after they have graduated. A copy of your degree from an accredited chiropractic college must be provided to the senior instructor at the practical exam.


This course is accredited for 14 CPD Hours by the European Academy of Chiropractic. 

We want to reduce our impact on the environment by limiting the amount of paper we are using for our CPD courses. Course notes: Not provided in hard copy. You will be notified by email to access notes via Dropbox or similar (this is free to access and you will not need to set up a Dropbox account)


AECC University College are pleased to be running the full Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioners series. You will need to book each seminar individually, the dates are as follows:

  • CCEP 3 - Advanced Principles of Soft Tissue (Jared Jensen) – 9-10 May 2020
  • CCEP 4 - Advanced Principles of Extremity Rehabilitation (Marius Jensen) – 17-18 October 2020
  • CCEP 5 - Advanced Principles of Lower Extremity Adjusting (Kevin Hearon) – 6-7 March 2021
  • CCEP 6 - Introduction to Principles of Foot, Gait, and Orthotics (Dan Prince) – 8-9 May 2021
  • CCEP 7 - Global Assessment of the Extremities (John Downes) – 2-3 October 2021


The Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner (CCEP) seminar series presents practical objective-based solutions for treating the extremities. The seminar series teaches how diagnosis and treatment is made simple through understanding the biomechanical functions of each joint.
Chiropractic often stresses the importance of nerve interference in the spine, but neglects that it may also occur in the extremities. This simplified process utilizes muscle tests as indicators for adjusting, providing instant feedback for patients when their strength returns immediately. While these seminars do teach some of the “textbook” information behind the process, the real value is the “hands-on” approach that will teach you how to efficiently implement these methods into your care the next day . . . and with little more than your hands, you can get started without a huge investment.
