Certified athletic trainers are medical providers involved in the prevention, assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries resulting from physical activity. Athletic trainers are recognized by the American Medical Association as allied healthcare providers in the field of sports medicine. All certified athletic trainers have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree from an accredited athletic training program and have passed a national competency exam administered by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association Board of Certification. Certified athletic trainers must also be licensed in the state of Wisconsin.
