State Agency Contact Disclosure

California is currently the only state that does not regulate the profession of athletic training. There is no legally defined scope of practice describing what an athletic trainer may or may not do.

There are no regulations mandating education and certification requirements for becoming an athletic trainer, meaning that anyone can call themselves an athletic trainer and practice in the state.
There is no mechanism for the public to file a complaint against an athletic trainer and have it investigated.
The CATA and many other medical organizations and key safety stakeholders believe this poses serious risks to the citizens of California and are committed to rectifying this situation. The CATA is working with assemblymembers on legislation that would license the athletic training profession and protect athletes and the physically active from unqualified individuals who are posing as athletic trainers in California.
