ACES Preparatory Workshop

If you plan to take the Board of Certification (BOC) exam for athletic training certification within the next nine months, this workshop could be your ticket to successfully completing the exam. Prior to attending the ACES Preparatory Workshop, you should have completed the required academic course work (or be currently enrolled).

An experienced staff of professional educators offer a weekend-long workshop designed to identify an athletic training student's specific strong and weak areas. We will examine each domain of the BOC 7th edition Program Analysis which is in effect for the April 2017 exam (formerly called the Role Delineation Study).  This is the "blueprint" for the BOC exam, and will be closely investigated, with review of the most recent changes. Various resources (textbooks, videos, etc.) will be available for the participants to utilize for studying throughout the workshop. Every participant will leave the workshop with an individualized action plan to enhance their preparation for the BOC certification exam. With this knowledge, the student may properly prepare in the most efficient manner by focusing their efforts toward the appropriate areas.

The ACES staff works hard to keep all materials used in our workshops up to date with information about the BOC exam. We take great pride in presenting accurate and current information about test design and format. All details regarding the test is carefully researched from information in the public domain published by the BOC.
