We offer a challenging curriculum and our dedicated faculty prepare students for rewarding careers in the athletic training profession and related fields. Athletic trainers are certified by the Board of Certification (BOC) and licensed in the state of Ohio by the Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Athletic Trainers’ Board.
