An athletic trainer shall meet the professional development requirements of the Board of Certification for the Athletic Trainer in order to maintain Board of Certification for the Athletic Trainer certification. These requirements may be met through a board-approved continuing education program.
The board shall approve a continuing education program that has been approved for maintenance of competence by the Board of Certification for the Athletic Trainer or its recognized successor.
The board shall periodically select a random sample of athletic trainers and require the athletic trainers to show evidence to the board of having completed the continuing education requirements attested to by the athletic trainer. Either the athletic trainer or state or national organizations that maintain continuing education records may provide to the board documentation of attendance at a continuing education program.
