The Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) is a 501(c)(3) non- profit organization recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).

As the sole accreditor of Athletic Training programs in the United States, we serve nearly 400 professional and post-professional degree programs and residency programs. As a leading accrediting organization, we are committed to proving educational quality assurance services across the continuum of AT education and to promoting the globalization of the Athletic Training profession. Our dedicated volunteers are central to the execution of the CAATE mission and vision.

As part of our mission of defining, assessing and continually improving Athletic Training education, the CAATE hosts educational programs to engage with current and prospective stakeholders to share best practices on assessment and accreditation processes.
