CAATE

The mission of the BOC is “to provide exceptional credentialing programs for healthcare professionals to assure protection of the public.” To attain certification, an individual must 1) graduate from an athletic training program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) or meet the ARTI or CATA eligibility requirements and 2) pass the BOC exam.

The CAATE is the agency responsible for the accreditation of more than 360 professional (entry level) Athletic Training programs, 16 Post-Professional Degree Programs and 2 Residencies. The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM), and the National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA) cooperate to sponsor the CAATE and collaborate to develop the Standards for Entry Level Athletic Training Educational Programs.
