SPEC Eligibility


In order to establish eligibility for SPEC, you must meet all of the following requirements:

  • You must hold or have held a license to practice chiropractic. The license may have lapsed, been suspended or revoked, etc.
  • You must provide written authorization from a state board or international licensing agency to take SPEC. The authorization form is part of the application. This form must bear an official state or national seal or stamp as well as an authorizing signature.

The NBCE does not limit the number of times you may take SPEC; however, this policy is unrelated to individual licensing agency policies regarding the recognition of examination scores.

Note: SPEC is not for initial licensing purposes and does not replace NBCE Part I, Part II, Part III and Part IV.
