Regulation of Athletic Trainers

The athletic trainer licensing program is administered by the Division of Corporations, Business and Professional Licensing. The Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development adopts regulations to carry out laws governing athletic trainers in Alaska. It makes final licensing decisions and takes disciplinary actions against people who violate licensing laws. This program was enacted by the Alaska State Legislature (HB 160 History), (AS 08.07.010) in 2014 and went into effect on September 16, 2014.

An athletic trainer license is required for all practitioners in the State of Alaska by July 1, 2017.

An athletic trainer must be certified by the Board of Certification for Athletic Trainers to qualify for licensure.

The practice of athletic training includes:

  • the treatment of an athlete for an athletic injury or illness prevention;
  • the clinical evaluation and assessment of an athlete for an athletic injury or illness sustained or exacerbated while participating in an athletic or sport-related exercise or activity;
  • the immediate care and treatment of an athlete for an athletic injury or illness sustained or exacerbated while participating in an athletic or sport-related exercise or activity;
  • the rehabilitation and reconditioning of an athlete for an athletic injury or illness sustained or exacerbated while participating in an athletic or sport-related exercise or activity.
