Athletic Training

Sports medicine is practiced by a Certified Athletic Trainer. Athletic Trainers work with other health care professionals that work with physicians to optimize activity and participation of patients and clients.

Duties of an Athletic Trainer:

  • Evaluate sports related injuriesathletic training wide
  • Provide immediate care and first aid
  • Assist individuals with preventative care
  • Diagnosis and assess injuries
  • Treatment and Rehabilitation Service
  • According to the National Athletic Trainers ’ Association, almost 70 percent of athletic trainers have a master’s degree or higher. Athletic trainers may need a master’s or higher degree to be eligible for some positions, especially for teaching and counseling roles.

In 2009, 47 States required athletic trainers to be licensed or registered; this requires certification from the Board of Certification, Inc. (BOC). For BOC certification, athletic trainers need a bachelor’s or master’s degree from an accredited athletic training program and must pass a rigorous examination.

Athletic trainers should not be confused with fitness trainers or personal trainers, who are not licensed or certified as an athletic trainer. Certified Athletic Trainers work with more than just athletes. They can work in a clinic setting, support high school athletics, collegiate sport programs, and industrial locations.

Students who want to become certified athletic trainers must earn a degree from an accredited athletic training program.
