Athletic Training Education Program—Accreditation

NSU’s athletic training major, established in 2003, is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE), effective March 2007. Athletic training students will graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Athletic Training and will be eligible to sit for the Board of Certification (BOC) examination. The athletic training major is designed to ensure that students who graduate from the program meet all requirements necessary to pass the BOC examination.

The Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) in the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences Division of Math, Science, and Technology, is accredited from the Commission of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). The CAATE accredits athletic training programs upon the recommendation of the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education. The CAATE provides peer review of the program’s educational content based on educational standards adopted by national medical and allied health professional organizations.

These organizations have cooperated to establish, maintain, and promote appropriate standards of quality for educational programs in athletic training and to provide recognition for exceptional programs. These standards and interpretations can be found at www.caate.net.
