The Athletic Training Education Program at Carroll University is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education. (CAATE)

The aim of the athletic training program is to train qualified health care professionals at the baccalaureate level who are educated and experienced in the management of health care problems associated with physical activity across the life span as defined by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association. Students are educated to work with athletic and physically active populations in a variety of settings including, but not limited to, secondary schools, universities, professional sports programs, sports medicine clinics, prevention and wellness settings, and industrial  settings.

The graduate athletic trainer is competent in the delivery of athletic training. The graduate possesses the knowledge and skills needed for risk management  and prevention of injuries associated with physical activity, the pathology of injuries and illnesses, assessment  and evaluation, and acute care of injury and illnesses for the physically active. The graduate applies knowledge and skills concerning pharmacology, therapeutic modalities, therapeutic exercise, general medical conditions and disabilities, and nutritional aspects of injury and illness for the physically active population.  The athletic trainer demonstrates the ability to carry out psychosocial intervention and referral, perform health care administration, and uphold professional development and responsibilities as outlined by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association. To ensure that the program is reflective of the development of athletic trainers at the baccalaureate level in a changing health care environment, ongoing student, faculty, program, institutional, and professional assessments occur regularly.

To meet the education mission for service and scholarly activity, the program utilizes a variety of individuals including, but not limited to, academic and clinical athletic trainers; basic, behavioral, and social scientists; other health care professionals; athletes and coaches; and community members. The athletic training academic faculty is responsible for design, implementation, and evaluation of the professional curriculum.  In addition to the academic training of future athletic trainers, the program is committed  to intra-and interdisciplinary service and scholarly activity in the delivery of athletic training.
