Athletic Training Lab

The Athletic Training (AT) Strategic Alliance released an official statement about the professional degree for athletic training. The AT Strategic Alliance is made up of the Board of Certification (BOC), Commission on Accreditation on Athletic Training Education (CAATE), National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA) and the NATA Research & Education Foundation. The current Standard 2 states "CAATE accredited professional athletic training programs must result in the granting of a master's degree in Athletic Training."

In order to maintain and continue our CAATE accredited professional (undergraduate) Athletic Training Program (ATP), and prepare this important degree transition, Fall 2017 was last admission for the B.S. in Athletic Training.

Note: Current SJSU students may declare B.S. in Athletic Training, but only students who are formally admitted into the Athletic Training Program (ATP) through our secondary ATP admission will be granted a B.S. in Athletic Training.

The mission of SJSU's Professional Athletic Training Program (ATP) is to prepare students to provide preventive services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention, rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions, and to pass the Board of Certification (BOC) examination successfully and become certified athletic trainers in the profession.
