Accreditation

The Keene State College Athletic Training Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). Students who graduate with a degree in Athletic Training are eligible to take the BOC (Board of Certification) Athletic Training Certification Examination. The Athletic Training Education (ATE) program’s status is Active- In Good Standing.

The Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) is now requiring all entry-level professional preparation for Athletic Training to be offered at the Master’s degree level. As a result, the College has made the decision to put the Bachelor of Science in AT under administrative review. The administrative review will allow the College to teach out our students in the undergraduate program under our current accreditation status and to evaluate its ability to support a health care program at the masters’ degree level.

Students who are currently matriculated to Keene State College must declare the BS in Athletic Training by January 2018 and must complete his or her degree by December 2021. The College, the Department of Human Performance & Movement Sciences and the Athletic Training academic program will work closely with the accrediting agency to maintain the accreditation status that allows graduates to sit for the Board of Certification Examination.

Students entering the college in academic year 2018 and beyond are encouraged to declare the BS in Exercise Science-Allied Health Option. This option is designed to support students wishing to pursue careers in cardiac rehabilitation, exercise physiology, or postgraduate medical and allied health fields (Athletic Training, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistance, Chiropractic, and others.).
