SCAM ALERT!!!

Licensees have reported that individuals claiming to represent various state licensing boards are contacting licensees claiming that their licenses are fraudulent or otherwise impaired. The individual is spoofing their Caller ID to appear as though they are calling from a Wyoming governmental agency. This is part of a nationwide wave of similar scams targeting professional license holders.

Please know that only the Board's staff at the Wyoming Department of Administration and Information, in particular Greg Searls, Amanda Best, or Maxie Cordova, will contact you about the status of your license or any pending discipline. Further, your license cannot be revoked or impaired without following the process laid out in the Board's rules for disciplining licensees, including notice and an opportunity to be heard.

If you receive a suspicious call that you believe is fraudulent, please report it to local or federal law enforcement. If you have any questions about the status of your license, please do not hesitate to contact the Board's staff.

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.
