FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – November 20, 2013 - Omaha, NE - The Board of Certification, Inc. (BOC) is now on Pinterest, http://www.pinterest.com/bocatc/. Pinterest is a tool to manage your interests and all the possibilities for your career goals. Members of the athletic training community who are Pinterest users will find a variety of resources and ideas – from learning about other professionals to enjoying Athletic Trainer humor.

Here is more information provided by Pinterest to help get you started:

What is a Pin?
A pin starts with an image or video you add to Pinterest. You can add a pin from a website using the Pin It bookmarklet, or you can upload an image right from your computer. Any pin on Pinterest can be repinned, and all pins link back to their source.

What is a Board?
A board is where you organize your pins by topic. You could pin ideas for new equipment to your Athletic Training Facility board, for example. Boards can be secret or public, and you can invite other people to pin with you on any of your boards.

What does it mean to Follow?
When you follow someone, their pins show up in your Pinterest home feed. You can follow all of someone's boards or just the ones you like best. To manage who you're following, go to your profile and click Following.

Now start creating your boards to pin and share ideas directly from the BOC!
