NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULE
DAR File No.: 29353
Filed: 12/18/2006, 03:51
Received by: NL
Purpose of the rule or reason for the change:
The Division and the Athletic Trainer Licensing Board are proposing this new rule to implement the Athletic Trainer Licensing Act, Title 58, Chapter 40a, that was enacted during the 2006 General Session of the Legislature in H.B. 74. (DAR NOTE: H.B. 74 (2006) is found at Chapter 206, Laws of Utah 2006, and was effective 05/01/2006.)
Summary of the rule or change:
This new rule provides the following: title, authority/purpose, organization/relationship to Rule R156-1, qualifications for licensure - athletic training curriculum requirement defined and renewal cycle/procedures.
State statutory or constitutional authorization for this rule:
Section 58-40a-101 and Subsections 58-1-106(1)(a) and 58-1-202(1)(a)
This rule or change incorporates by reference the following material:
Adds the "Standards for the Accreditation of Entry-Level Athletic Training Education Programs", dated June 8, 2006, published by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE)
Anticipated cost or savings to:
the state budget:
The newly established rule will need to be printed and distributed to interested parties at an estimated cost of $75 which can be absorbed within the Division's current budget.
No fiscal impact on local governments is anticipated because local governments are not required to seek licensure as an athletic trainer.
Individuals who seek licensure as an athletic trainer will incur the cost of required education, certification examination and licensure fees (initial application and renewal) as was addressed in the fiscal note the Division completed for H.B. 74. No additional costs will be incurred as a result of adoption of this proposed rule. For individuals who seek licensure as an athletic trainer, the following Division fees will apply: initial application fee is $70 and the renewal fee is $47 every 2 years. The Division is unable to determine an aggregate amount due to the fact that the Division does not know how many persons will apply for licensure as an athletic trainer.
Compliance costs for affected persons:
For individuals who seek licensure as an athletic trainer, the following Division fees will apply: initial application fee is $70and the renewal fee is $47 every 2 years.
Comments by the department head on the fiscal impact the rule may have on businesses:
This rule filing implements the Athletic Trainer Licensing Act (ATLA), Section 58-40a-101 et seq. No fiscal impact to businesses is anticipated beyond those previously addressed upon passage of the ATLA during the 2006 Legislative Session. Francine A. Giani, Executive Director
