What is a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC)?

Certified Athletic Trainers are allied health care providers who specialize in the prevention, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries and illnesses that occur to athletes and the physically active.
To become an ATC, one must graduate with a bachelors or masters degree from an accredited professional athletic training education program and pass a comprehensive test administered by the Board of Certification.
