Regulations Governing the Licensure of Athletic Trainers [18 VAC 85 ‑ 120]
This action is part of the regulatory reform initiative.
Regulatory reform changes
Action 3917
General Information
Action Summary The Board has determined that evidence of graduation by way of a transcript, as required in section 60, and documentation of passage of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association Board of Certification (NATABOC) examination, as required in section 70, are redundant to criteria for certification and unnecessarily burdensome on applicants, educational institutions and the Board. Evidence of current NATABOC certification provides assurance that an applicant has met the educational and examination requirements for licensure, so sections 60 and 70 are repealed. Other changes are proposed for clarification of the current regulations.
