About Athletic Trainers

Who's taking care of your child during their athletic practices and games?
  • Athletic Trainers (AT) are highly qualified, multi-skilled health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions. 
  • ATs have been recognized as health care providers by the American Medical Association since 1990.
  • Beginning in 2022, all ATs that wish to be certified through the Board of Certification, Inc. must obtain a Master's degree from a CAATE accredited program. 
  • CA is currently the only state that does not regulate the profession of Athletic Training. This means anyone can claim to be an AT and work with athletes without the proper education. 
  • Del Norte is proud to support the California Athletic Trainers' Association (CATA) in their efforts to gain licensure which would regulate the athletic training profession in CA.
 
Athletic Trainer vs "Trainer"
ATs are sometimes confused with personal trainers. There is, however, a large difference in the education, skillset, job duties, and patients of an athletic trainer and a personal trainer. The athletic training academic curriculum and clinical training follows a medical model. ATs must graduate from an accredited program. ATs work hard for their degree! Please use the full name or "AT".
