Board of Certification Exam

North Park University's athletic training major will prepare you to sit for the Board of Certification (BOC) exam, a national exam which will qualify you to become a certified athletic trainer (ATC). Only students graduating from CAATE-accredited* programs are eligible for the BOC exam. The BOC is the only accredited certification agency for athletic trainers in the United States, ensuring that athletic trainers are prepared to provide prevention, emergency care, diagnosis, and rehabilitation to individuals, in collaboration with physicians and other healthcare providers.
