Credentials Evaluation for Athletic Trainers / Therapists and Sport Rehabilitators

Ready to Get Started?

Already Registered?

The Athletic Rehabilitation Therapy Ireland (ARTI), the British Association of Sport Rehabilitators (BASRaT), the Board of Certification for the Athletic Trainer (BOC), and the Canadian Athletic Therapists Association (CATA), require athletic trainers/therapists and sport rehabilitators already credentialed in their jurisdictions to complete an international credentials evaluation with ICD as part of their application for certification or registration in Ireland, the United Kingdom, the United States or Canada.

ICD’s Credentials Evaluation for Athletic Trainers/Therapists and Sport Rehabilitators (CE-ATSR) service demonstrates to these credentialing bodies how your qualifications align with their standards for credentialing and helps them better understand your international credentials so they can make the right decision about your application.

Your CE-ATSR report will include:
