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. California is the only state that does not regulate the profession of Athletic Training. This means that anyone can claim to be an AT and work with athletes without proper education.
The athletic training room, which includes the Trainer's office, is located in the gym between the old gym and the boy's locker room.
