The athletic training education focus area is designed to teach students the knowledge, skills and attitudes to prepare for a career in athletic training. This program is a combination of classroom lecture, discussion, demonstration and practice with observation, learning, application and experience.
An athletic trainer functions as an integral member of the athletic health care team in secondary schools, colleges and universities, medical clinics, performing arts, large corporations, NASCAR and professional sports teams.
Preparation for IHCC:
Prospective students should have a background in science classes and take a course in anatomy and/or sport medicine if available.
Since the bachelor’s degree requirements of various transfer institutions differ, students planning to transfer to a four-year institution are strongly advised to familiarize themselves with the requirements of the program at the institution to which they plan to transfer. Students should consult with an advisor at the transfer institution and with an IHCC academic counselor to plan a program that meets those requirements.
