NAHS Athletic Trainers and Service
What is a Certified Athletic Trainer?
As defined by the National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA), Certified Athletic Trainers (AT's) are highly qualified, multi-skilled health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to optimize patient and client activity and participation in athletics, work and life. The practice of athletic training encompasses the prevention, examination and diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of emergent, acute, subacute, and chronic neuromusculoskeletal conditions in order to minimize subsequent impairments, functional limitations, disability, and societal limitations.
Athletic trainers’ work settings include high schools, colleges, universities, professional sports teams, hospitals, rehabilitation clinics, physicians’ offices, corporate and industrial institutions, the military, and the performing arts. Regardless of their practice setting, AT's practice athletic training (or provide athletic training services) according to their education and state practice act and must be certified by the NATA Board of Certification after completion of a Masters Degree program at an NATA accredited university. AT's work under the direction of a physician as prescribed by state licensure statutes.
