Parker Seminars Vegas: January 9-11, 2014

Chiropractic Continuing Education

Please be aware that the CE Department uses Radio Frequency (RF) technology to track your attendance this year. Please read the “How to Receive Credit” section below for important instructions.


CE Hours Available

A doctor of chiropractic can earn up to 16 hours of Continuing Education (CE) credits at the Parker Seminar Las Vegas pending your state board’s approval.  Classes that have been submitted as DC CE hours are marked with a 'star' on the  grid schedule PDF. CE credits are provided by Parker University.  Be sure to review our Attendance Policy and procedures below. 

How to Receive CE Credits

  • Register for CE credits in advance when registering for Parker Seminar Las Vegas or on-site at the walk-in registration kiosk ($60 prior and $85 after tuition price increase)
  • Please note:  we are no longer requiring doctors to sign their attendance verification form, so you will not receive it in the mail prior to the seminar.  Once the seminar is over, the CE department processes your hours based on the attendance data captured by the RF equipment.
  • Once on-site at the seminar, obtain your name badge at the "pre-registered" area.
  • View the exception list to make sure your state board did not deny any of the CE classes. The exception list can be viewed at the CE kiosk.
  • If you are licensed in more than one state, please relay that information and the license numbers to one of the staff at the CE kiosk.
  • Unless you have a specific CE question, there is no need to stand in line at the CE kiosk.
  • We are using RFID gateways to capture your classroom attendance. Please note that although this technology seems new, it is very well tested and has been utilized for many years at other venues. If you have any questions regarding this process, please don't hesitate to contact us: 800.266.4723 or askpostgrad@parker.edu  

Instructions to Receive Credit: 

  1. Attend the classes marked CE on the program (avoid exceptions your state may have).
  2. We are using RF technology to track your attendance in the CE classes.
  3. We are using radio frequency (RF) technology to track your attendance in the CE classes. Your name badge will be embedded with a unique identifier RF tag. Sensors placed around marked doors of the CE classes will use wireless technology to read this tag as you enter and exit the room. You must enter and exit from these marked doors for your attendance to be recorded. Not using these entry-ways will negate hours. The gates will not be removed during non-CE classes. Do not assume a class is CE based on gates being present. Double check your program to verify the class period is CE applicable.
  4. Your name badge must remain in the holder and be worn on the lanyard provided. 
  5. Once the seminar is over, the CE department processes your hours based on the attendance data captured by the RF equipment.

 Seminar Attendance Policy and Procedures 

As a continuing education provider, Parker University is obligated by the state chiropractic boards to monitor attendance in each CE class.  This means we need to ensure doctors are actually attending CE classes. The easiest and most efficient way for us to do this is to utilize radio frequency tracking in the CE classes and have an attendance monitor present. Arriving late or leaving early will affect your overall class time. We are using radio frequency (RF) technology to track your attendance in the CE classes. Your name badge will be embedded with a unique identifier RF tag. Sensors placed around marked doors of the CE classes will use wireless technology to read this tag as you enter and exit the room. You must enter and exit from these marked doors for your attendance to be recorded. Not using these entry-ways will negate hours. The gates will not be removed during non-CE classes. Do not assume a class is CE based on gates being present. Double check your program to verify the class period is CE applicable.

Don't hesitate to ask the monitor for assistance or to answer any questions you may have.  Please help us help you obtain your renewal hours by following this process.
