Under the CAATE system of accreditation, accreditation is a continuing process. Should a program not submit the self-study at the required time, the athletic training program will be placed on probation and ultimately, may have its accreditation removed involuntarily. All self-studies are due July 1st. If a program’s accreditation certificate says 2019-20, the self-study is due July 1 of 2019. The site visit must occur during a window of dates determined by the CAATE, in the fall of 2019 or spring of 2020. The program director and the site visitors (once they are assigned) mutually agree on the date of site visit. Self-studies are submitted within the eAccreditation system.
