The Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). All Athletic Training major graduates are eligible to sit for the National Athletic Trainers' Association Board of Certification examination as a curriculum candidate.
Students pursuing an Athletic Training major will submit a formal application for admission into the athletic training education program during the spring semester of their freshman year. Transfer students shall be required to complete an advanced placement application and be held to the same admission requirements. All transferred courses and credits must be approved by the Registrar, department chair, and program director. A complete list of admission criteria for traditional and transfer students for the Athletic Training Education Program can be found on the website http://academics.olivet.edu/athletic_training/about.
The Athletic Training curriculum utilizes a learning-over-time model and is based on educational competencies developed by the National Athletic Trainers' Association Education Council. Included in the model are a sequencing of formal courses and clinical rotations. Once admitted, students will participate in a variety of athletic training clinical experiences with Olivet athletics, area medical practitioners, rehabilitation clinics, and local high schools. Prior to clinical rotations, students are required to update their ATEP annual physicals, blood-borne pathogen training, TB vaccination, CPR/AED certification, and a signed consent or waiver for Hepatitis B vaccination. Transportation to all clinical affiliate rotations is the responsibility of the student. Clinical rotations are demanding and require a minimum of 100 hours every semester. Students with simultaneous non-academic obligations of employment or intercollegiate athletics must petition to the program director for permission to do so.
Students seeking athletic training state licensure or certification following graduation are encouraged to complete individual state application criteria not included in the ATEP curricular requirements. For further information, contact the program director or refer to the program website at http://academics.olivet.edu/athletic_training.
