  • Athletic Trainer 2020 license renewal

    Renewal for all Athletic Trainers is now open. Please log into the Ohio eLicense Center at to renew your license. Preferred browser is Google Chrome.

    Recent legislation, House Bill 197, has extended the deadline for expiration of all licenses issued by the state of Ohio until either 90 days after the expiration of the emergency declared by Governor Mike DeWine’s Executive Order 2020-01D or December 1, 2020 – whichever date is earlier. As a result, the expiration date for all OTA and AT licenses has been adjusted to December 1, 2020 in the Ohio eLicense system. Please note that this date will change if the emergency order is lifted.

    Although the deadline to renew has been extended, we encourage you move forward with renewal based on the previous expiration date of September 30, 2020 for athletic trainers. The deadline for completion of your required continuing education is unchanged.

    For ATs: You must have completed twenty-five hours between October 1, 2018-September 30, 2020, including two hours of evidence-based practice and one hour of professional ethics. Any CE taken on or after October 1, 2020 will count toward the 2022 renewal. The ethics requirement may be met by taking the renewal jurisprudence exam at Reminder: the requirement to take a certain number of in-person hours has been eliminated for your licensure CE.

    You do not need to submit your certificates during your renewal, but please retain them in case you are selected for audit. First time renewals do not have to complete continuing education. 

    If you do not wish to renew your license, no further action is required from you at this time. However, you will continue to receive renewal reminders since your expiration date is approaching. Simply ignore these reminders if you do NOT wish to renew. Please note, the Board no longer offers an option to place your license in escrow.

    If you have any questions, please contact us at If you need assistance logging in, please contact (855) 405-5514 Monday-Friday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
