The CCEA is monitoring the evolving situation regarding the COVID-19 global pandemic. The pandemic continues to pose a significant public health risk, and the CCEA is taking the advice and guidance of the Australian Government, and the World Health Organisation.

As an accreditation and skills assessment authority, the CCEA takes its role and responsibilities seriously. We will continue to work with all of our stakeholders to ensure business continuity and timely service provision during this difficult time. To this end, we have collaboratively developed advice for our accredited chiropractic programs as guidance. With regard to competency-based skills assessment, we will keep candidates informed as and when things change. For candidates that are based in Australia or New Zealand, we are still offering sessions where possible, and remain committed to assisting you to complete the process. Please refer to the 'Upcoming Assessments' side panel where the next assessment sessions are listed.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, and we will endeavour to resolve your queries as best we can given the nature of this situation.
