The Athletic Training program at Marist College aims to prepare the athletic training student for a transition into professional practice as competent and appropriately credentialed health care providers.

Key facts:

Athletic training is an area of health care concerned with prevention, recognition, care, management and rehabilitation of injury and illness in physically active populations. Athletic trainers work as part of a comprehensive sports medicine team that includes physicians, physical therapists, and other health-care professionals. 

The National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) is the professional membership association for certified athletic trainers and its purpose is to represent, engage and foster the continued growth and development of the athletic training profession and athletic trainers as unique health care providers.

Upon completion of the B.S. degree in Athletic Training at Marist, graduates will be eligible to sit for the certification examination administered by the Board of Certification, Inc. (BOC). Those passing this exam will be certified as athletic trainers.


Marist's ATP is accredited by and fully meets all of the accreditation standards set forth by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education  (CAATE) and is registered with the New York State Education Department as a licensure-qualifying degree program.
