Athletic Training

Athletic training is a growing allied health profession dealing with the prevention, evaluation, management and rehabilitation of injuries to the physically active. To become an athletic trainer, one needs to:

  • be admitted into an accredited athletic training program
  • graduate with a bachelor’s degree
  • pass the National Athletic Trainers’ Association Board of Certification examination and
  • comply with state athletic training laws
