OVERVIEW:  The SWATA Competency Workshop is intended to be a complement to CAATE athletic training programs and to assist students preparing for professional credentialing examinations in athletic training (state and/or national exam formats). The examinations, covering the domains of athletic training, will be scored to provide attendees with a baseline of their cognitive knowledge. Feedback will be provided on exam questions. The workshop will also provide nationally recognized speakers and networking opportunities. The District VI Quiz Bowl Competition is also held in conjunction with the Competency Workshop. The winning team will represent District VI at the NATA Annual Meeting & Clinical Symposia.

TARGET AUDIENCE:  College and University Seniors and second year Graduate Students

2020 DATES:  Friday, January 22, 2021

LOCATION:  Virtual 

FORMAT:  The workshop format will be different for 2021 than in previous years. The workshop will focus on exam preparation for students in their final semester. The practice exam will be administered virtually at the student’s university. Students will need to work with their program faculty or campus testing center to designate a proctor and complete the exam January 20-21, 2021. The virtual workshop will be held January 22nd. We encourage programs to set up a classroom to allow students to participate in the virtual event together to provide an environment similar to the traditional workshop. 

TESTING FORMAT:  Attendees will complete the practice exam via an online format similar to the BOC exam. Attendees will need to identify a proctor to assist with exam administration.
