Wyoming Athletic Training Board

Board Office Updates

The State of Wyoming has adjusted its work policies to protect the health and safety of our staff and licensees. Effective immediately and until further notice, board staff will be working remotely.

Although the office will remain open, due to limited staffing we encourage you to e-mail board staff with inquiries. While we are constantly monitoring phone traffic, e-mail is the most efficient way to reach us:

Greg Searls - greg.searls@wyo.gov

Amanda Best -amanda.best@wyo.gov

If you need to speak with a staff member, please call the office and leave a voicemail message. We will return your call as quickly as possible.

We continue to accept and process applications as usual, though processing times may be slightly delayed.


COVID-19 Practice Guidance

In light of recent events, several licensees have asked the Board to advise them how best to continue their practice and have specifically asked for the Board’s guidance on potential closures.

The Board of Athletic Training cannot close your practice due to COVID-19. If there would be any mandatory closures, it would not come from our office. We also cannot advise you on the correct course of action. The following links may help you make an informed decision regarding your business.

Board's Mission

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.

The Wyoming Board of Athletic Training is staffed through the Professional Licensing Boards Office, a division of A&I.
