The ATC functions as an integral member of the health care team. The Certified Athletic Trainer works under the direction of a licensed physician and in cooperation with other health care professionals, athletics administrators, coaches and parents. Each Certified Athletic Trainer has fulfilled the requirements for certification established by the National Athletic Trainers Association Board of Certification, Inc. He/she must also be licensed by the state through the Ohio Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Athletic Trainers Board.
