The West Virginia Occupational Therapy Association is a non-profit organization with volunteers that encompasses professionals within the community
It has come to the attention of WVOTA that West Virginia athletic trainers will now be placed with licensure. As it currently states:
"This rule provides the regulatory framework for licensure, regulation and discipline of athletic trainers who are licensed by the West Virginia Board of Physical Therapy. The rule sets forth: qualifications for licensure as an athletic trainer; requirements for licensure, renewal, reinstatement and reactivation of expired licenses; criminal history record check; temporary permit; scope of practice for athletic trainers; the extent to which athletic training students and/or permittee may practice in the state; and continuing education requirements." 
Also due to the hard work of Mary Hager, Jackie Hurt and Sarah Black were able to notify and communicate with the president of the athletic trainer association of West Virginia to assure that Althletic trainers were not going to practice OT. 


Efforts of AOTA also assisted in helping to acknowledge specific terminology to successfully be assured that Athletic Trainers would practice within there own scope.
