Wyoming Athletic Training Board
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.
Licensees are still required to adhere to the Board’s Rules, Practice Act, and professional standards related to their professions.
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.
