Athletic Training

The mission of the Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) is to provide an active learning environment for students to acquire and master the knowledge, skills, clinical proficiencies, and attitudes necessary for success as an Entry-Level Athletic Trainer.

Our goals and objectives are to prepare students to pass the BOC Certification Exam and the Texas Advisory Board of Athletic Trainers State Licensure Exam; to develop students’ critical-thinking and decision-making skills for success in the allied health profession of athletic training; and to instill in them the value of professionalism. We want to teach students how to become involved in their professional associations through service work and to facilitate their efforts in locating and securing an athletic training job or placement in a graduate school.

The UT Arlington ATEP is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).
