New Hampshire Athletic Trainers Governing Board


Due to a shortage of staff at the Office of Licensed Allied Health Professionals we are behind in the processing of renewal applications for Athletic Trainers, Physical Therapists, Physical Therapist Assistants, and Recreational Therapists.  If an individual has provided the renewal application either electronically or by paper an individual can continue to practice until they receive their new updated license.  Thank you for your patience while we process renewals.

The site was developed to provide items of interest to licensees, applicants, and consumers. It is our hope that the site is useful and informative. We invite you to contact the office with your comments, suggestions or further information on specific questions.
