Working Together to Advance the Profession
The Strategic Alliance is a group of four leading organizations committed to the athletic training profession and to the delivery of quality health care to the public. The four member organizations are the Board of Certification, Inc. (BOC), the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE), the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) and the NATA Research & Education Foundation (NATA Foundation).
Each member of the Strategic Alliance serves a distinct group of stakeholders, yet all members have a shared interest in advancing the athletic training profession. The BOC focuses on certification and consumer protection, CAATE focuses on accreditation and quality education, NATA focuses on professional development and advocacy, and the NATA Research & Education Foundation focuses on research and scholarships for those in the profession.
