Approximately 25 expert presenters on almost as many separate topics are featured throughout the series. Many of the presenters are practicing doctors of chiropractors who, in addition to their technical training, describe their own experiences in their consulting practices. Other presenters are experts in their respective fields relating to occupational health and applied ergonomics.

In addition to completing educational courses the doctor is required to complete a pre-approved field-study consulting project with one or more employers in his or her community. To assist the doctor with the field study project, detailed technical/academic assistance is provided primarily through the tutelage of David Gilkey, DC, CPE, Ph.D. of Colorado State University. The consulting service field study must follow a pre-determined plan of execution and documentation which is explained in detail by Dr. Gilkey in his recorded sessions.
