Search for Accredited Programs
The CAATE accredits three different types of educational programs in athletic training.
Professional Programs lead to eligibility to sit for the Board of Certification examination and to enter the profession of athletic training. Professional Programs are available at both the baccalaureate and post-baccalaureate degree levels.
Post-Professional Degree Programs lead to a degree (masters or doctorate) for learners that are already credentialed as athletic trainers and expand the depth and breadth of the applied, experiential, and propositional knowledge and skills of athletic trainers through didactic, clinical, and research experiences. These programs DO NOT qualify the learner to sit for the BOC exam.
Post-Professional Residency Programs are formal educational programs that offer structured curricula, including didactic and clinical components, to educate Athletic Trainers. They are designed to build upon and expand the Athletic Trainer’s knowledge and experience acquired during professional (entry-level) education.
The database may be searched by program type (professional, post professional degree, post professional residency), degree level, or state.
Active- In good standing– the program is not currently required to submit a progress report and is in compliance with all Standards.
Active-Progress report due– it is very common for programs to have progress reports due at any given time. A progress report is requested when a non-compliance with a standard(s) is/are discovered. The progress report is a way for the program to address that standard. It DOES NOT mean that the program is in danger of being placed on probation. To see which standard(s) is/are non-compliant, please see the accreditation actions page of this website.
Probation- Academic- Probation is levied on currently accredited programs that fail to maintain compliance with the Standards. A program may remain on probation until such a time that they become compliant with the Standards, or until the Commission moves to withdraw accreditation due to continued non-compliance with the Standards. A list of the non-compliant Standards for which the program was placed on probation may be found on the accreditation actions page of this website.
