South Dakota Athletic Training Licensure

In South Dakota, athletic trainers must obtain a license from the South Dakota Board of Medical & Osteopathic Examiners (SDBMOE).

To begin the process, complete and scan the online application request (OAR) form to the SDBMOE general email: You will receive instructions via email on how to do the online application.

There is more to the application process than simply filling out the online application. You will have a personalized online checklist provided once the application is submitted, reviewed and accepted.
