Status Definitions

The following status definitions are effective as of January 1, 2012 per the BOC Professional Practice and Discipline Guidelines and Procedures.

Certified

Certification is in good standing. Individuals may practice as authorized by the BOC.

Expired

Certification is voluntarily resigned for reasons unrelated to disciplinary proceedings. ATs with an Expired status may not represent themselves as Certified Athletic Trainers or use the ATC® certification mark.

Certification is forfeited due to non-compliance with BOC certification fee and/or continuing education requirements. Respondents with an Expired status may not represent themselves as Certified Athletic Trainers or use the ATC® certification mark.

Suspended

Certification is not in good standing as a result of the imposition of a disciplinary action of the BOC chief executive officer’s decision that there is cause to believe that a threat of immediate and irreparable injury to the health of the public exists. Respondents with a Suspended status may not represent themselves as a Certified Athletic Trainer or use the ATC® mark.

The Disciplinary Action Exchange (DAE) was developed to help the BOC, states and consumers locate disciplinary actions in an efficient manner.

Launch DAE

Resign Certification

BOC Certified Athletic Trainers (ATs) may resign certification by completing “AT299 – Retirement/Resignation Request” in their BOC profile.

Quality Improvement (QI)

Complete a QI project to enhance your patient-centered care and outcomes. QI provides the framework to continuously and systematically evaluate Athletic Trainer’s healthcare delivery to improve their practice and quality of service for patients. These four-week projects provide a hands-on opportunity to apply a solution within your practice setting to a targeted quality problem. These projects involve short pre and post assessment items to help measure improvement. QIs address real problems in the workplace where the participant attempts to create real solutions that ultimately improves practice and patient outcomes.

Topic: Facility Principles

This quality improvement project focuses on facility principles, an important part of administration of any athletic training facility. Local, state and federal entities issue regulations and standards – which often overlap – to ensure the quality of facilities where health care services are delivered. You may not be aware of all regulations and best practices, which could open you up to increased exposure to liability. In this project, you will assess using the “BOC Facility Principles” to assemble baseline data of adherence to requirements. This evaluation will be followed by implementation of actions to address gaps in facility requirements. Finally, you will reflect and analyze the impact of your intervention.

Overview of FP Project

Project Time: 4 weeks, upon completion of this QI project 10 Category A CEUs will be issued.

Instructions:
  1. Track time spent preparing, implementing and reflecting on the project as you will be asked to report this time at the end
  2. Complete the worksheet below by following each week’s instructions and entering information as requested
  3. Identify and assemble personnel involved in your project
  4. Collect baseline data on an athletic training facility’s compliance with applicable regulations and best practices
  5. Define a goal, implement an improvement action
  6. Measure changes post-improvement action and reflect and summarize the impact of the intervention

Cost: 10 Category A CEUs for $30

Topic: Hand Hygiene

This quality improvement project focuses on hand hygiene, an important practice to reduce the spread of infection. Proper hand hygiene by health care providers will lead to decreased infections in patients. This four-week project includes implementation of a one question patient survey to gather baseline data. This step will be followed by implementation of an improvement process to increase the level of hand hygiene compliance in your setting. At the conclusion of the project, a final survey will measure change in improvement.

Maintain Certification-Emergency Cardiac Care

According to the mission of the American Heart Association, Emergency Cardiac Care (ECC) programs are intended to reduce disability and death from acute circulatory and respiratory emergencies, including stroke, by improving the chain of survival in every community and in every health care system.

Athletic Trainers (ATs) must be able to demonstrate ongoing certification in ECC throughout the reporting period. Although continuing education units (CEUs) are not awarded for ECC certification, ATs need to be current with the ECC requirements throughout the reporting period. Full details of this category are located in the “Certification Maintenance Requirements.”

Requirements:
  • Documentation must be kept for two years after the reporting period has ended
  • The only acceptable documents are original certification cards, original certificates of completion or photocopies (front and back) of certification cards or certificates of completion
  • Online ECC courses are acceptable if skills are demonstrated and tested by a certified ECC instructor, a voice assisted manikin (VAM) or a visual assisted manikin. The in-person exam can include video technology.
  • The instructor and card holder must sign cards or certificates of completion if a QR code is not provided
  • Letters provided by instructors are not acceptable
ECC Must Include:
  • Adult CPR
  • Pediatric CPR
  • Second rescuer CPR
  • AED
  • Airway obstruction
  • Barrier devices (e.g., pocket mask, bag valve mask)
  • Demonstrated skills

*Online ECC courses are acceptable if skills are demonstrated and tested by a certified ECC instructor, a voice assisted manikin (VAM) or a visual assisted manikin. The in-person exam can include video technology.

Online ECC Courses

Online ECC courses are acceptable if skills are demonstrated and tested by a certified ECC instructor, a voice assisted manikin (VAM) or a visual assisted manikin.

The in-person test can include video technology. Examples of acceptable blended programs include:

AHA HeartCode® – students must attend a structured hands-on session with an AHA Instructor
ProTrainings LLC’s ProCPR – students must select the blended/hands-on option that requires a live instructor-led video conference

ACLS Certification Institute’s Advanced Cardiac Life Support is an example of an online ECC course that does NOT meet this requirement because it does not require skills to be demonstrated and tested.

ECC Providers

Acceptable ECC providers are those adhering to the most current “International Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiac Care.” Please check with your ECC provider to confirm that the course includes all components.

ECC Instructor Cards

The BOC accepts the American Heart Association BLS Healthcare Provider Instructor or American Heart Association BLS Instructor card. All other instructor cards are unacceptable unless the provider can confirm, in writing, that their instructors are required to maintain and successfully demonstrate provider skills to renew their instructor status.

Maintain Certification-Certification Maintenance Fee

Every Athletic Trainer (AT) is required to pay an annual BOC certification maintenance fee. The annual certification maintenance fee supports the administrative, disciplinary, regulatory and professional development activities required of the BOC to retain NCCA accreditation and assure protection of the public. NCCA accreditation highlights the essential elements of a high-quality program and is necessary for continued recognition of ATs by employers and state regulators that identify the BOC exam and CE requirements in their state statutes, rules and regulations.

Requirements:
  • The BOC will waive the certification maintenance fee for ATs who are certified in the same year the fee is assessed
  • The fee is non-refundable
  • To receive the NATA membership discount on your BOC certification maintenance fee, your NATA membership must be current and your member number must be entered in your BOC profile at the time of payment to receive the discounted fee.
  • ATs who are not NATA members, will receive notice at the beginning each year to pay the $65 certification maintenance fee by the end of that year.
