    Pre-Athletic Training

    Dean provides the opportunity for a rewarding career with an associate degree in Pre-Athletic Training from Dean College.   

    The Pre-Athletic Training major is designed for those students who want to combine strong interests in science, athletics and medicine. A certified athletic trainer is an allied health care professional who works with athletes to prevent, treat and rehabilitate sport injuries under the direct supervision of a physician. Certified athletic trainers work in a variety of settings including high school, college and professional sport organizations, as well as private clinics. Dean’s Pre-Athletic Training curriculum offers students basic theory courses linked to a practicum supervised by a licensed athletic trainer certified by Board of Certification, Inc. (http://www.bocatc.org/candidates/exam-eligibility.)

    Graduates with an A.A. in Pre-Athletic Training are ready to enter a four years program.
