The Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) is the agency responsible for the accreditation of professional athletic training educational programs. The purpose of the CAATE is to develop, maintain, and promote appropriate minimum education standards of quality athletic training programs. CAATE accredits Professional, Post-Professional and Residency Programs in Athletic Training. CAATE is sponsored by The American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine, and the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA).
The National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA) is the professional membership association for certified athletic trainers and others who support the athletic training profession.
The Board of Certification (BOC) was incorporated in 1989 to provide a certification program for entry-level Athletic Trainers. The BOC establishes and regularly reviews both the standards for the practice of athletic training and the continuing education requirements for BOC Certified Athletic Trainers. The BOC has the only accredited certification program for Athletic Trainers in the US.
