Athletic Training Education reaccredited by Commission on Accreditation for Athletic Training Education

Athletic Training Education program has been reaccredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Athletic Training Education. The program will not need another onsite visit until 2020-21.

"Extending the reaccreditation date is a testimony to the high quality curriculum of our Athletic Training Education program (ATEP) and the diligent work of our Athletic Training faculty and staff," said Dr. Kacy Crabtree, vice president for academic affairs.�

Rita Smith serves as the Program Director of ATEP and Bradley Huff is the Clinical Supervisor. Jill Sparrow, Joe Hawkins and former employee, Michael Nyquist complete the team.

Athletic Training is an allied health field. The "Standards of Accreditation" are endorsed and supported by the American Academy of Family Physicians, American Academy of Pediatrics, American Orthopaedics Society for Sport Medicine and the National Athletic Trainers Association.
