Titled Members and Fellows of AICE are able to use post-nominals, provided they are current members of AICE, and have fulfilled the necessary CPD requirements.
Titled Member or Fellow status qualification is a living award based on fulfillment of ongoing CPD requirement and membership dues. Non-compliance of these requirements will result in the candidate losing their Titled Member/Fellow status.
The use of post-nominals must be in accordance with regulations adopted by the ACA board and in accordance with National law.
As per the CBA Codes and Guidelines, there are no recognised specialties for chiropractors. Chiropractors must not use the term ‘specialist’ in any advertising because of the likelihood that such advertising would mislead or deceive the general public about your chiropractic skills, qualifications and experience.
The correct order for the use of post nominals is:
- Commonwealth Honors and Awards
- University degrees both pre and post-graduate
- Appointments such as Justice of Peace
- Membership of associations
Examples for Titled Members:
Titled Members approved under the AICE CPG Category are entitled to use 'MAICE' along with the relevant clinical area, followed by the year of approval.
For e.g. a Sports & Exercise Titled Member can use:
- Mary Smith (Sports & Exercise Chiropractor) MAICE 2019
- Dr Mary Smith, Sports & Exercise Chiropractor (AICE 2019)
Examples for Fellows:
Fellows approved under the AICE CPG Category are entitled to use 'FAICE' along with the relevant clinical area, followed by the year of approval.
For e.g. a Sports & Exercise Fellow can use:
- Mary Smith (Sports & Exercise Chiropractor) FAICE 2019
- Dr Mary Smith, Fellow Sports & Exercise Chiropractor (AICE 2019)
Chiropractors at Member level are not entitled to the use of AICE Titles or Post Nominals.
Overseas post nominals must only be used when they are a result of a qualification, not membership of an overseas association.
