Program Directory Provides Free Marketing Opportunity to BOC Approved Providers
Share on Social Media
Many BOC Approved Providers (APs) are not taking advantage of the free marketing opportunity provided through the AP program annual fee. The BOC program directory is commonly accessed by Athletic Trainer (ATs) searching for Category A programs to fulfill their continuing education (CE) requirements.
Not only is the BOC program directory CE search tool marketed directly to ATs, but the “Standards for BOC Approved Providers” require APs to enter CE programs into the program directory at least 10 calendar days prior to the event. Programs include all asynchronous/synchronous events and virtual/F2F events.
To assist in this process, the below tutorial walks through the process for program entry in the BOC program directory. If you need any further assistance, please contact the BOC office at Provider@bocatc.org.
