Athletic Training Program

This video is available at .

Eastern Washington University originally obtained CAAHEP accreditation for the athletic training curriculum program in October 2002.  The program went through the process of CAATE (Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education) re-accreditation during the 2007-2008 academic year.  The next comprehensive review will occur during the 2017-2018 academic year.  This accreditation is also reviewed annually.

This major is designed for those students who are interested in becoming certified athletic trainers. This major will prepare students to sit for the Board of Certification for the Athletic Trainer Examination, and work competently in the field of athletic training and sports medicine. Students must apply and be accepted into the Athletic Training Program. Admission to the program is based upon evaluation of the student's application materials.

We believe we have an up-to-date, comprehensive and exciting program to offer you.

If you have questions or want to setup an advising appointment, please feel free to contact Garth Babcock, program director, 509.359.2427,, or the PEHR Department, PEB 200, Cheney, WA 99004-2431.
