State Licensure/Certification Disclosure

The Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training degree program, which is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE), is designed to lead to certification as an athletic trainer. Students are eligible to sit for the Board of Certification (BOC) Exam for the Athletic Trainer when they are in their last semester or upon successful completion of the degree program. Currently, the BOC exam is recognized as the examination that satisfactorily meets educational requirements expected by state regulatory agencies that regulate (license, certify, or register) Athletic Trainers . At this time, California is the only state that does not regulate the Athletic Training profession . Consequently, there are no additional educational requirements required for all 50 states.

It is important to note that individual states have the authority to require additional information from students prior to awarding them  a state license, certification, or registration in addition to passing the BOC exam in order to practice as an athletic trainer. Students are strongly encouraged to review their state specific regulations prior to enrollment for any non-educational requirements for their respective state such as a license application qualifications, state fees and character and fitness standards. For the most up to date information regarding athletic trainer state regulation for all states, please refer to http://www.bocatc.org/athletic-trainers#state-regulation.
