Continuing Education Credits
Certified athletic trainers who attend all three days of the NATA 68th Clinical Symposia & AT Expo will earn up to 25 CEUs. Additional CEUs may be earned by attending Advanced Track Seminars (6 CEUs for Monday events; 4 CEUs for Friday events), Minicourses (1 CEU each) and pre-conference Career Development Workshops (CEUs vary).
Of the 25 CEUs available at NATA 2017, there is a potential for five of them to be Evidence-Based Practice category CEUs.
|BOC Approved EBP Programs will feature this “EBP” icon:|
There will be five events at convention eligible for EBP CEUs. Some of the EBP events run concurrently so registrants will be able to attend up to three of the five. The BOC Approved EBP Programs for 2017 will be announced soon.
Participants must complete an online assessment for each EBP event attended to receive EBP CEUs. Each day during convention, eligible attendees with confirmed attendance will receive an email to complete evaluations for that day’s events. These emails will be sent to the email address used to register for convention.
Assessments must be completed and turned in by a deadline (to be determined later) to receive EBP CEUs. Participants are encouraged to complete the evaluations as they’re received each day to ensure they are completed on time. If evaluations aren’t submitted by the deadline, participants will receive category A CEUs for the event. Have your registration number ready as you will need to enter it to complete the assessments.
If the evaluation email doesn’t make it to your inbox, check your junk/spam folder. If it’s not there, email email@example.com with the email address you need the evaluation link sent to. It is the attendee’s responsibility to let NATA know if they didn’t receive the evaluation email.
Statements of Credit
In line with BOC requirements, NATA provides CEU certificates post-event. Approximately one month after convention ends, an email will be sent to all eligible registrants with confirmed attendance with instructions on how to access and print their CEU certificate.
