Want to Develop an EBP Program for ATs?
New Resources are Available to Help
Beginning this year, ATs must complete a minimum
number of BOC Approved Evidence Based
Practice (EBP) Category CEUs for the 2014-
2015 Certification Maintenance Period. If your
organization wants to offer a live event or home
study program in the EBP category for CEUs, you
must apply through a process separate from the
Category A application.
The EBP program application follows a five-step
EBP process to ensure basic EBP principles are
incorporated into the program. The application helps
guide program development.
Note that you don’t have to submit your entire event for EBP. You can also submit just
a few sessions. You may submit your application based on whichever sessions are
developed on evidence based principles.
As a BOC Approved Provider, you – not an AT – submit the live event or home study
program for BOC review. An efficient way to complete the application is to work with the
speaker as he or she develops and delivers the program.
