About qualification and skills assessment

The Council on Chiropractic Education Australasia (CCEA) is responsible for the assessment of qualifications and skills for:

  • Migration to Australia
    In accordance with the Migration Regulations 1994, the CCEA has been specified by the Minister for Immigration and Border Protection as the gazetted assessing authority for the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) General Skilled Migration program for the occupation Chiropractor (ANZSCO 252111).
  • Registration in Australia
    In accordance with the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law Act 2009, as in force in each state and territory, the CCEA is responsible for performing assessments of the knowledge, clinical skills and professional attributes of overseas qualified chiropractors seeking registration in Australia with the Chiropractic Board of Australia (CBA).
  • Registration in New Zealand
    In accordance with the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003, the New Zealand Chiropractic Board (NZCB) has adopted the CCEA qualification and skills assessment process for overseas qualified chiropractors seeking registration in New Zealand.

Please note: successful completion of the CCEA qualifications and skills assessment does not guarantee you automatic migration to Australia or registration in Australia or New Zealand. Please contact the DIBP for migration (www.immi.gov.au), and the CBA or NZCB for registration (www.chiropracticboard.gov.au or www.chiropracticboard.org.nz) requirements.
