Earning certification from the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association's professional certification program represents a significant achievement. The program of the AVCA promotes the highest standards of animal chiropractic care for the protection and benefit of the patient as well as the public.

Certification is awarded to licensed doctors of chiropractic and/or veterinary medicine that have successfully passed the AVCA approved post-graduate program in animal chiropractic, and have met the AVCA certification requirements which include: passing both a comprehensive written examination, and clinical competency (practical) examination. Certification is distinct from licensure in that it is voluntary and requires recertification to maintain the credentials.

What is the importance of certification?

It is a professional membership group promoting animal chiropractic to professionals and the public, and acting as the certifying agency for doctors who have undergone post-graduate animal chiropractic training. Members working together within their disciplines to expand and promote the knowledge and acceptance of animal chiropractic to their professions, the public and governments; locally, nationally and internationally.
