The Board of Certification

Board-Certified Orthopedic Specialty

A board-certified athletic training specialty assures you have top specialized talent on your team.

Employers in a wide variety of settings are embracing the incredible value that Athletic Trainers bring to the table. This value is multi-faceted and most employers that leverage the expertise of an Athletic Trainer soon discover more ways to integrate them into their practices.

With all the places that employ Athletic Trainers, it only makes sense to recognize the specific skills and knowledge needed to work in settings as disparate as physician’s offices, orthopedic clinics, occupational health departments, the military and of course, secondary level schools and universities.

For any employer, optimizing the value that an Athletic Trainer can bring your team hinges on understanding the skills, experience and knowledge they possess. The Board of Certification Orthopedic Specialty Certification can help you, and others on your health care team, leverage the most out of Athletic Trainers - incredibly efficient and effective professionals.

"They (Athletic Trainers) are critical to our rehab business. The things they are able to do within the clinical setting, coupled with their level of continuing ed (education) is greater than that of our other professionals."

What is the BOC Orthopedic Specialty Certification?

This is a board-certified certification for Athletic Trainers who specialize in orthopedics. It is a way to formally recognize Athletic Trainers who have acquired specialized education and focused experience in orthopedics beyond the requirements for the ATC® credential. Athletic Trainers who are board-certified in orthopedics possess advanced experience and specialized knowledge, skills and professional behaviors to provide optimal care for orthopedic patients.

This orthopedic specialty is much more than a certificate earned after a day-long seminar. It is the first and only board-certified specialty for Athletic Trainers in orthopedics and is backed by the Board of Certification’s rigorous process and standards.

"An AT (Athletic Trainer) with specialty certification would add value to any practice due to the core athletic training skills." - Specialty Council Member
