What is a Certified Athletic Trainer?
Certified Athletic Trainers (ATCs) are medical professionals who specialize in the prevention, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries and illnesses that occur in athletes and the physically active. Athletic trainers are board certified by an independent organization called the National Athletic Trainer’s Association Board of Certification as well as licensed in the state that they work in.
