Mar 24, 2015An Innovative Way to Earn Your ITAT Certification
The University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences is the first institution of higher learning to incorporate ImPACT Trained Athletic Trainer (ITAT) certification into the curriculum of its online Master of Health Science in Athletic Training degree program.
Students in the program will receive specialized training in ImPACT© neurocognitive baseline and post-injury test administration and the implementation of ImPACT’s Concussion Management Model in the online “Concussion in Sport” course. As part of the course, students must meet all requirements necessary to become an ITAT. At the completion of the course, students will receive ITAT credentials.
“Having the advanced knowledge of concussion that is gained through the ITAT certification process will give our students an immediate edge,” says Program Director Jordan Hamson-Utley, PhD, LAT, ATC.
The Concussion in Sport course was developed by contributing faculty member Dr. Robb Rehberg, a founding partner of the Rehberg Konin Group and executive director of Sport Safety International.
This innovative collaboration was spearheaded by Labiba Russo, ImPACT’s chief training and education officer. “We are building ImPACT’s training programs as a value-added for health care professionals,” said Russo. “We believe that comprehensive concussion management requires multi-disciplinary clinicians working together to assist in safe return to play.”
Our post-professional, online master’s in Athletic Training makes it possible for you, as a certified and/or licensed athletic trainer, to advance your career while balancing your personal and professional commitments.
