Sometimes, fellow students may be a good resource for learning about questions
on previous exams. This is not the case when preparing for the BOC exam.
Whether you are an exam candidate or you have already earned your BOC
certification, remember it is illegal and unethical to memorize and share questions
that appear on the BOC exam. Doing so can jeopardize your ability to practice as
an Athletic Trainer.
On the day of the exam, candidates must agree to the Candidate Attestation
statement. This is a confidentiality agreement asserting that no part of the exam
may be copied or reproduced in any way before, during and after exam. This
includes, but is not limited to, emailing, copying or printing of electronic files,
reconstructing content through memorization and/or dictation. In the confidentiality
agreement, you agree to not discuss the exam questions and/or answer options
with anyone at any time. “Anyone” includes, but is not limited to:
•;Past or future examinees
•;Test preparation companies
Any violation of the confidentiality agreement is also a violation of the BOC
Standards of Professional Practice and may result in disciplinary action,
assessment of monetary damages and legal liability.
Please protect yourself and your colleagues, and abide by the confidentiality
agreement. More information is available in the BOC Exam Candidate Handbook.
Sharing is good, but not when it
comes to the BOC exam.
When you sit for the BOC exam,
you agree to keep all content
confidential – meaning you agree
you will not copy, reproduce or
even memorize and repeat exam
Violating the confidentiality
agreement could jeopardize
your current or potential BOC
certification. It could do the same
for your colleagues.
Protect yourself. Don’t
share exam content.
