Welcome to the home page of the The Advisory Board of Athletic Trainers. The Advisory Board of Athletic Trainers (a Texas state board created by the Athletic Trainers Act) is the licensing and regulatory authority of athletic trainers in Texas. The board implements the provisions of Chapter 451, Texas Occupations Code (the Athletic Trainers Act), which was effective September 1, 1971. The board's purpose is to protect public health, safety, and welfare by establishing and enforcing qualifications and standards of practice for licensed athletic trainers.
The Advisory Board of Athletic Trainers has adopted changes to the licensure rules, and those changes became effective on March 17, 2011. You may download a copy of the new rules, and information about the rule changes, by selecting this link http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/at/at_rules.shtm.
