PUBLIC NOTICE FOR PROPOSED RULES
WYOMING STATE BOARD OF ATHLETIC TRAINING
Public notice is hereby given that the Wyoming State Board of Athletic Training intends to act on the following proposed rules. The proposed rules may be viewed and printed from the Board’s web page at http://athletictraining.wyo.gov/.
These rules are drafted to reduce and streamline government as requested by the Governor as well as to clarify and make specific adjustments. Chapter 2 and Appendices A and B are proposed to be repealed as they are no longer necessary. Appendix B is being incorporated into Chapter 7. Chapter 1,4,6,7 and 9 are proposed to be amended. Chapter 1 is also a new rule as the Board is creating an annual regular board meeting as required by house enrolled act #40 (2014). Chapter 9 is also a new rule as the Board is adopting the office of administrative hearings uniform contested case rules as required by senate enrolled act #47 (2014). A rule to clarify the 120 day grace period in statute (W.S. § 33-45-107(d)) is being proposed in Chapter 4. Chapter 6 is being amended to change a renewal requirement concerning continuing education, which was changed in the last rule revision and this reference was missed. These rules are proposed by authority of the Board to regulate the qualifications and establish standards of performance for persons licensed as athletic trainers in Wyoming. These rules provide for enforcement and proper administration of the provisions of the Wyoming Athletic Trainers Licensing Act.

2015 Proposed Rules
The Board is legislatively mandated to safeguard the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of Wyoming by ensuring that those individuals licensed to provide these athletic training services in this state are appropriately qualified.
Who Must Be Licensed or Certified
Anyone who is practicing athletic training as defined in statute:
"Practice of athletic training" means the application of the principles and
methods of prevention, recognition, evaluation and assessment of athletic injuries and illnesses, immediate care of athletic injuries including common injuries, medical emergencies, psychosocial intervention and referral, conditioning and rehabilitative exercise, nutritional aspects of injuries and illnesses, the use of therapeutic modalities, proper healthcare administration, professional development and the understanding and education of applications, precautions, interactions, indications and contraindications of pharmacology for athletes. "Practice of athletic training" does not include the practice of physical therapy as defined in W.S. 33-25-101(a)(i).
The Athletic Training Act is also a Title Act, meaning no one can use the title of Athletic Trainer in Wyoming without a license through the Board.
