On behalf of the Exercise and Sports Science Division, the Athletic Department and the Athletic Training Staff, we welcome you to the Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) at Concordia University Irvine. Our mission is to provide a didactic and clinical education program that will prepare you for a professional career as a Certified Athletic Trainer. We also have the unique opportunity to help our students uphold the mission of Concordia University Irvine by preparing our young men and women for lifelong learning, service and leadership in a Christian environment.
The small college atmosphere at Concordia University Irvine allows us to provide a personal education for each student. This also allows us to focus on two important areas:
A Higher Standard of Care
Each student knows what to expect from the staff and what we expect from each student.
An Increased Emphasis on the Education of Athletic Training Students (ATS)
There is an increased opportunity and emphasis placed on the evaluation of ATS in the cognitive and technical aspects of athletic training.
We hope you will find this program unique. We strive to provide a student friendly environment where you can continue to learn, mature and eventually serve your community.
