Click on the appropriate tab below to see the Renewal Requirements, Process, Fees and Continuing Education (CE) for an Athletic Trainer.

Current licenses expire at midnight, Eastern Time, on September 30, 2016.

To ensure you receive your renewal notification from the department, your current mailing address must be on file. Failure to renew an active or inactive license by the expiration date will result in the license being placed in delinquent status. Failure by a delinquent licensee to renew before the expiration of the current licensure cycle renders the license null and void without any further action by the board or the department.

A licensee who remains on inactive status for more than two consecutive biennial licensure cycles and who wishes to reinstate the license may be required to appear before the board and establish the ability to practice with the care and skill sufficient to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public.

If you are renewing your license, please refer to the Laws & Rules governing your practice for additional requirements.

The department will renew your license upon receipt of:

  • Completed renewal application
  • Required fees
  • Current BOC certification attestation
  • 100 % CE compliance in CEBroker
