January 2016:  Dr. King reported that the Council on Chiropractic Education Australasia (CCEA) is considering changes to its accreditation methodology to focus on educational outcomes.

Dr. McMaster reported that the New Zealand College of Chiropractic has had a CCEA accreditation visit.

The CCEA registration exam for chiropractors not trained in a CCEA-accredited school is now offered 3 times a year – in Sydney, Perth, and New Zealand.

A new chiropractic program in Adelaide plans to take its first cohort in early 2018.

 March 15, 2015:  Reported by Dr. McMaster     The New Zealand chiropractic board is no longer running their examination for DCs trained elsewhere – they have contracted with the NZ chiropractic college to handle that.   This will now be one of the three locations where chiropractors trained outside of NZ and Australia can take the exams to practice in either country (due to the reciprocal Trans Tasman agreement).  The other locations are at Macquarie in Sydney and Murdoch in Perth.
