This program has two paths of study: 1) an educational foundation in athletic training that may be applicable to related allied health programs, 2) to become eligible to take the BOC certification examination for athletic trainers to become a BOC certified athletic trainer. In addition to the educational foundation in athletic training, completion of a two year program in athletic training clinical education is required.
