What is a Certified Athletic Trainer?
Certified Athletic Trainers, also known as ATCs, are medical professionals who specialize in the prevention, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries and illnesses that occur in athletics and among the physically active. You've probably seen an ATC working with professional athletes on television, at local sporting events and in the high school athletic training room.
