How to become an athletic trainer
Athletic trainers are certified professionals who provide hands-on care for injuries and medical conditions.
They play a vital role in helping people – usually athletes – stay active and well.
To become an athletic trainer, you need to hold a master’s degree from an accredited program and pass the Board of Certification (BOC) exam.
Our accredited program has a great track record for the BOC exam.
