What is athletic training?
Athletic training encompasses the prevention, examination, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of emergent, acute or chronic injuries and medical conditions.
Who are athletic trainers?
Athletic trainers are highly qualified, multi-skilled healthcare professionals who work under the direction of a physician to provide high quality healthcare services to athletes. Athletic trainers hold a minimum of a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university; many continue their education gaining a master’s degree. Athletic trainers must pass a national certification board exam administered by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association Board of Certification. SportsPlus Certified Athletic Trainers (ATC’s) are also licensed professionals by the State of Iowa.
