California - AB1510
Licensure for Athletic Trainers
February 17, 2017
Also known as the Athletic Training Practice Act, this legislation would provide for the licensure and regulation of Athletic Trainers in California – the only state in the nation that doesn’t regulate the profession. AB 1510 would establish the Athletic Trainer Licensing Committee within the California Board of Occupational Therapy to implement these provisions, and prohibit a person from practicing as an Athletic trainer or using the title unless the person is licensed by the committee. Requirements for licensure –including education and examination – and scope of practice for the profession would also be specified.
