You may now utilize the credential LAT

—  Name, Title

BEST PRACTICES

  • Do NOT use ATC/L, ATC/R, LATC or any other combination of ATC, as the credential is trademarked.

  • "Athletic trainer" or "AT" are the preferred terms. NEVER use "trainer" or "certified trainer." If this occurs in a direct quote, use "[athletic] trainer" or "certified [athletic] trainer." 

  • Use AT as the abbreviation for athletic trainer. Use ATC only when referring to the credential.

  • NATA does not use the term “certified athletic trainers” unless the circumstance requires distinction. We do allow this term within BOC submissions to NATA publications.
