BOC certification cards and certificates are emailed to all ATs. New BOC cards and certificates will be emailed on a
monthly basis starting in November to ATs who have met the 2013 recertification requirements. The newly designed
certification cards will include information on the CE accumulation period and total CEUs due.
The BOC encourages all ATs to print their card and carry it with them. Please also save the email that contains the PDF file
of your card and certificate. Should you lose the printed card, you can go back to the original email and print the card again.

The Board of Certification, Inc. (BOC) has been responsible
for the certification of Athletic Trainers (ATs) since 1969.
The BOC was the certification arm of the professional
membership organization the National Athletic Trainers’
Association (NATA) until 1989 when the BOC became
an independent non-profit organization.
Vision of the BOC:
To be the worldwide leader in credentialing
Mission of the BOC:
To provide exceptional credentialing programs for healthcare
professionals to assure protection of the public
The BOC has the only accredited
certification program for ATs in the
US. Since 1982, the BOC has been
continuously accredited by the National

review and reaccreditation every 5
years through the NCCA, which is
the accreditation body of Institute for
Credentialing Excellence (ICE).
