The International Arrangement (IA) for the profession of athletic training and therapy plays a key role in optimizing care, injury prevention, rehabilitation and supporting the rights of patients and the public to achieve their potential to live well. The IA ensures comparable best practices, quality education and professional standards. The IA provides an opportunity for Athletic Trainers, Athletic Therapists and Sport Rehabilitators to be mobile on a global scale by creating a pathway to challenge each other’s credentialing exam.
The current credentialing organizations included in the IA are Athletic Rehabilitation Therapy Ireland (ARTI), BOC (USA) and Canadian Athletic Therapists Association (CATA). Additionally, the British Association of Sport Rehabilitators (BASRaT) is in the process of accumulating exam data and as a result, has been granted provisional acceptance into the IA. Organizations who have met all criteria except the exam requirements may be granted provisional acceptance into the IA.
