The Athletic Trainer Aide certificate is designed to develop, practice, and implement basic skills in the prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. These courses will set a foundation that will aid in the support of a career in the field of sports medicine while also providing the minimal experience necessary to assist high school trainers and athletic health providers in the community. The program will better prepare students for transfer into an accredited athletic training education program at the four-year university level.
