Official verification of current athletic training certification status can be ordered for state licensure or employment purposes. Requests are processed within two business days of receipt. There is a $25 processing fee.
Please note that verification is sent directly to the state regulatory agency or the employer.
Anyone may request verification of an AT's certification. If official verification is not needed, search the online registry.
The following status definitions are effective as of January 1, 2012 per the BOC Professional Practice and Discipline Guidelines and Procedures.
Certification is in good standing. Individuals may practice as authorized by the BOC.
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.
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.
