Letter from the Professional Development
Did You Know?
I would like to thank you for continuing to serve as a BOC Approved Provider in
2013! As you know, BOC Approved Providers have achieved an elite status that
is recognized by Athletic Trainers (ATs) across the spectrum. Your dedication to
providing continuing education (CE) opportunities ensures that ATs are on the cutting
edge of the profession and able to provide top-quality care to their patients.
Be Certain. TM that you are reaching ATs as they seek CE opportunities by completing
a brief questionnaire about your organization’s programs. This information will be
used to update our AP Directory – a directory that ATs use to identify BOC Approved
Provider and approved CE courses. Please feel free to review the information
currently listed for your organization to determine if updates are needed.
Athletic Trainers (ATs) depend
on quality courses to maintain
their certification. Show your
appreciation of the athletic
training profession by donating
BOC approved home study
courses. Donated courses
will be provided to ATs who
participate in a drawing at the
BOC booth during the 2013
National Athletic Trainers’
Association Clinical Symposia.
Additionally, I want to let you know about a few new opportunities and resources. As
you saw on Page One of the AP Update, all ATs will soon be required to complete a
minimum number of BOC Approved Evidence Based Practice (EBP) CEUs. Please
review the story and consider which courses in your catalog may be applicable for the
New BOC Approved Provider resources are available for your review. Please take a
moment to look at the new information and retain it for future reference as you hold
CE events. Resources include the following:
•;Updated AP Guidebook, which now includes a checklist for event planning and
•;Updated certificates of attendance, including home study courses, and a
conference speaker letter of acknowledgement
•;New AP evaluation tool that can be completed electronically or on paper
Don’t have any BOC approved
home study courses, but still
want to participate? The BOC
will also share continuing
education discounts and/or
special promotions being offered
by BOC Approved Providers at
the BOC booth.
Remember, all ATs are required
to renew their certification
by December 31, 2013. Be
Certain.™ to include a coupon
code or other means for
redemption along with your offer.
Finally, please note I will be your new primary contact for CE related events. Mindy
Lindquist is now focusing on sales and advertising. Mindy and I will continue to work
together in the BOC Approved Provider Program to assist you with all your provider
Once again, thank you for your hard work in helping provide quality CE to fellow ATs.
