Athletic Training and Sports Medicine

The Athletic Training program at MJC is designed to prepare students for appropriate procedures in prevention, care and rehabilitation of athletic injuries.  This degree is also designed to transfer students to four-year institutions where they can continue their education to fulfill the requirements of the National Athletic Trainer's Association.  This will lead to the student's eventual eligibility to challenge the national examination, and upon successful completion of the required courses and passing the exam, become a Certified Athletic Trainer.

Transfer Opportunities

It is becoming increasingly difficult for students interested in athletic training to get into impacted university programs.  Students graduating with an A.S. Degree in Athletic Training will stand out as highly-qualified candidates for entrance to University programs.  As of January 1, 2004, all apprenticeship programs (universities) will no longer exist.  to become a Certified Athletic Trainer, you will need to successfully complete your degree in Athletic Training at an accredited , approved curriculum university, and pass the NATA certification examination.  MJC's program allows students to begin concentrating in the related class work required by NATA prior to university enrollment.
