Unveiling New Standards Soon!
The Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training (CAATE) is set to unveil the Standards of Accreditation for Professional Athletic Training Programs at the Masters Degree Level (2020 Standards) as soon as copy-editing is complete. The anticipated release date of the 2020 Standards, as well as a crosswalk document, will be on or around March 1, 2018. The Commission continues to work to finalize additional documents, such as the explanations of compliance, that will assist programs in transitioning to the 2020 Standards. These documents are intended to be released prior to the National Athletic Trainers Association Annual Clinical Symposia & AT Expo. Commission leadership will continue to be present at all NATA district meetings to discuss any stakeholder questions about the Standards.
