Quick Access to Official Athletic Trainer Certification Verification

Upon earning the ATC credential, state regulatory agencies and prospective employers often require official verification of an Athletic Trainer’s (AT) certification as part of acquiring and meeting state regulations. This is a quick and easy step that can be handled electronically. ATs can request official verification of their certification status for state regulation or employment purposes online:

  • Step 1: Log into BOC profile or visit this link
  • Step 2: Select “Request Official Verification” from the black menu on the left
  • Step 3: Follow prompts to pay the $30 processing fee and submit request

Certification verification is immediately sent via secure email to either the state or employer.

Currently, 49 states have some form of athletic training regulation. The BOC exam is recognized to obtain certification in all 49 states. It is important to recognize that passing the BOC exam and earning BOC certification is just a precursor to athletic training practice and does not guarantee the ability to obtain a state license allowing an AT to practice in the United States. Compliance with state regulatory requirements is mandatory and the only avenue to legal athletic training practice.

Visit the State Regulation page to view laws and contact information for each state and/or contact the BOC for assistance.
