WHAT IS AN ATHLETIC TRAINER?

Certified Athletic Trainers are medical experts in preventing, recognizing, managing, and rehabilitating injuries that occur during physical activity. Athletic Trainers (AT’s) can help avoid unnecessary medical treatment or get the appropriate medical attention if needed.

 Education Required:

  • Bachelor’s Degree from an athletic training accredited University
  • 70% of AT’s Have Masters’ or PhD degrees

WHO DOES AN ATHLETIC TRAINER WORK WITH?
