Board of Athletic Trainers

The Illinois Board of Athletic Trainers was created in 1985. The Board is made up of seven

members appointed by the Secretary, consisting of four licensed athletic trainers, two licensed

physicians and one public member. Beginning in January 1996, the Athletic Trainers Practice

Act was revised to provide full licensure rather than title protection registration. An athletic trainer

is one who, upon the direction of the team physician or consulting physician, carries out the

practice of prevention/ emergency care and/or physical reconditioning of injuries incurred by

athletes participating in an athletic program. The Board is charged with providing expert

knowledge and advice on disciplinary matters and professional performance and conduct.
