BOARD OF CERTIFICATION FOR THE ATHLETIC TRAINER JOINS JOINT ACCREDITATION
We are delighted to announce a new opportunity: jointly accredited providers have the option of offering accredited continuing education activities and profession-specific credit for Athletic Trainers.
We’ve collaborated with the Board of Certification for the Athletic Trainer (BOC) to expand Joint Accreditation for Interprofessional Continuing Education, enabling you to award BOC Continuing Education Units (CEUs) or interprofessional continuing education (IPCE) credit to Athletic Trainers without needing to attain separate program or activity accreditation through BOC.
If you are jointly accredited and your target audience includes Athletic Trainers, or you are interested in expanding your target audience to include this profession, we invite you to consider this new option. Jointly accredited providers will have the opportunity to add Athletic Trainers to their portfolio in June.
