Important Message Regarding License Expiration Dates!

Important message regarding license expiration dates: As part of the response efforts to the Novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID- 19), State Surgeon General Dr. Scott A. Rivkees issued Emergency Order DOH No. 20-012 extending the licensure renewal expiration date until November 30, 2020 for any health care practitioner with licensure renewal deadlines between August 31, 2020 and October 31, 2020. Please visit the Florida Board of Athletic Training website for information!

 

Attention Athletic Trainers –2020 is a FLODH renewal year!  Please see the valuable and NEW information about CE reporting and renewal below:

 

Last year, the FLDOH Board of Athletic Training modified Rule 64B33-2.003, Florida Administrative Code, Requirements for Continuing Education, regulating the CEs for Athletic Trainers.  Changes are effective for the 2020 reporting cycle for license renewal of Athletic Trainers and eliminated the requirement for face to face contact hours for CE and the mechanism of reporting CEs in CE Broker favor ATs across the state.  Please review the guidelines and specific process available on the Board of Athletic Training website and process instructions HERE

 

Key highlights include:

  1. ATs can update CE Broker with certification information and upload a copy of the BOC card, current Emergency Cardiac Care Certification, and 2-hour approved Medical Errors course completion to fulfill the CE reporting requirements for license renewal (see upload process document HERE ).

  2. The administrative code eliminated the need for a minimum percentage of CE activities occurring face to face during the biennial reporting – all laws and rules affecting the AT profession can be found on the resources tab.

  3. Activities deemed appropriate for CEs by the BOC meet expectations for FLDOH reporting.

 

If you have questions regarding the FLDOH license renewal process, please contact Janet Hartman at janet.hartman@flhealth.gov. Renewal information is available on the FLDOH Board of AT website
