Students in the class learn about anatomy, first aid, CPR, vital signs, and the prevention and treatment of sprains, strains and other ailments. They get an opportunity to work side-by-side with a certified athletic trainer and get a chance to decide if this is the field for them. The field is expected to grow much faster than average through at least 2018.
