Athletic Training  General Licensing Rules



BOC Standards of Professional Practice



Visiting Athletic Trainer Rule
Please read the copy of Senate Bill 263, which grants a visiting athletic trainer who is either BOC Certified, or licensed as an athletic trainer in another state, the right to temporarily practice as an athletic trainer for 30 days in the State of Michigan. The bold typed portion of Subsection 4 of Section 17902 was the addition to the existing legislation.
This bill was passed in the Michigan House on April 29th, 2011 and now goes to Governor Snyder for his signature. We expect this final step to occur within the next several weeks.
Senate Bill 263 was not introduced nor sponsored by MATS, but instead by representatives of the Detroit Tigers and Detroit Lions. However, the MATS Executive Board, the Governmental Affairs Committee, and our legislative lobbyist became involved at several points to make sure the proposed bill would not affect our current AT legislation, and assisted in crafting the final language.
