Health Promotion & Human Performance: Athletic Training
The Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training program (BSAT) at Weber State University is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). In 1998, under the direction of Interim Program Director Joel Bass, administration, faculty, and staff at Weber State University were given approval to offer a Bachelor of Science degree in Athletic Training. The program received its initial accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) in 2003, under Roberto Herrera, the Program Director at that time. This accreditation is awarded following the submission of a detailed self-study document as well as an on-campus site visit. This program received its renewal of accreditation in March 6, 2009; the program will be reviewed again (including a physical site visit) during the 2018-2019 academic year.
In almost every state, in order to work as an Athletic Trainer, one must graduate from an accredited AT program and pass the Board of Certification (BOC) exam for Athletic Trainers. The outcomes listed below are those identified by the BOC’s Practice Analysis which is used to develop the certification exam. In the Bachelor of Science Athletic Training Education Program (BS-ATEP), students learn all content in didactic courses. During each of the last four semesters, students are then enrolled in a clinical course which reviews all of the content from the previous semester(s). Students must demonstrate a minimum of a 70% on the written final and oral/practical exams in every clinical course in order to pass the course.
