Each person holding an active athletic training credential must, on or before the date of expiration of the credential, comply with the continuing competency requirements for his/her profession, unless the requirements are waived in accordance with 172 NAC17-005.03 and 172 NAC 17-005.04. Each credentialed individual is responsible for maintaining certificates or records of continuing competency activities.
On or before May 1 of each odd numbered year each athletic trainer who has an active license must:
- Have current certification from the Board of Certification for the Athletic Trainer (BOC, Inc.) or
- Complete 25 hours of continuing education during the preceding 24 month period; and
- Hold a current cardiopulmonary (CPR) certificate from a nationally recognized organization that issues CPR certificates

-004.01D, items 3, 6, 7, and 8; or

The Board of Athletic Training will not pre-approve continuing education programs. Each athletic trainer will need to determine if the continuing education program he/she will be attending is acceptable. Once an athletic trainer has determined that a program is acceptable and attends the program he/she must maintain a copy of the certificate of attendance and the course outline /objectives or other required documentation in his/her personal files.
The Department or the Board may biennially select, in a random manner, a sample of the renewal applications for audit of continuing competency requirements. Each credential holder selected for audit must produce documentation of the continuing competency activities.
