Our undergraduate Athletic Training program, which has been accredited since 2001, has a long history or preparing graduates for the Board of Certification (BOC) Exam. While being granted a 10-year reaccreditation in 2015, the program is currently applying to the CAATE for a degree-level change from a bachelor’s to a master’s. Given our strong history of CAATE accreditation, we fully expect the MSAT Program to be accredited by June 2021.
We are higher than the national average for both first-time and overall pass rates on the Board of Certification Exam, which is proof that we prepare our graduates for success. We accomplish this in a variety of ways including:
- Comprehensive reviews built into courses so that past material is connected to new material for reinforcement.
- Competency-based learning, in which students are taught in a step-wise progression, gaining and demonstrating mastery as they move through the program.
- Specific learning modules on test-taking skills to help students prepare to take standardized, computer-based tests.
- Use of official Board of Certification practice exams to help students identify areas in which they are strong and those in which they need improvement.
- Use of exam questions in AT Program courses that mimic the types of questions used in the Board of Certification exam.
