The Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician® (CCSP®) program is a hands-on, fast-paced, cutting-edge sports program that combines live weekends and online learning for a total of 100 hours of study and will qualify you to earn the prestigious CCSP® certificate, issued by the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians®.  There are 50 hours of coursework at Life West, 50 hours of online coursework, practice in the field, and written and practical exams. It is a rigorous, professional credentialing program that promotes professional knowledge and competency of chiropractic practitioners engaged in the specialty of chiropractic sports performance.

Complete Program

The 2021 cost of the complete CCSP® program is $2700.  This includes all live and online coursework.  Online coursework may not be purchased separately.  Participants seeking the Certificate must register for the complete program rather than individual courses.

Individual Seminars

Individual live courses are $399 each, $369 each for returning CCSPs.  When you register for the full CCSP program, individual courses are significantly discounted.  You may not purchase online coursework separately, so individual seminars are only recommended for those not seeking certification or those already certified.

Individual seminar registrations follow our regular cancellation policy.  See About for details.

There are no CCSP series refunds after your first month in the program. You must notify the CE office before the second seminar begins if you wish to cancel.
A $100 processing fee is charged for series registrants who cancel without taking any seminars.
