Duties and Responsibilities

  The athletic trainers governing body is the National Athletic Trainers Association. The NATA establishes the standards of practice, and code of ethics for all athletic training professionals to abide by. Certified athletic trainers work in a variety of settings including secondary schools, school districts, colleges, universities, professional sports teams, and sports medicine clinics.
  The six major performance domains of practice established by the NATA are listed as follows:
  1. Prevention
