The Arkansas State University Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) is designed
to prepare students for the challenges of the expanding allied health profession of athletic
training. Through the combination of extensive classroom and clinical experiences in athletic
training, graduates of the program achieve the entry-level competencies necessary to
challenge the certification examination offered by the National Athletic Trainers' Association
Board of Certification (BOC) and embark on a career as a certified athletic trainer (ATC®).
The ATEP is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) through the 2021-2022 academic year. Interested students should contact the Athletic Training Program Director at (870) 972-3066 for more information.
