The certified athletic trainer (ATC) is a healthcare professional that collaborates with physicians to provide care to a wide range of populations. To earn certification, ATCs must first graduate from an athletic training degree program accredited* by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education, as North Park is. During your final semester, you’ll be eligible to take the Board of Certification national exam.
North Park's first-attempt passing rate for the BOC exam is 76%, and the overall passing rate for graduates from North Park's ATEP is 94% (percentages are three-year aggregates). View the outcomes of our recently graduated students.
