The UW-Stevens Point athletic training program provides students with opportunities that utilize classroom and real-life experiences so students become valued athletic training professionals. Students are evaluated on skills and knowledge throughout each experience and receive feedback to encourage growth and improvement. To achieve certification in athletic training, students must graduate from a CAATE-accredited athletic training program and pass a national Board of Certification (BOC) examination.

Explore Career Opportunities in Athletic Training

Upon graduation, students commonly attain jobs at clinics and high schools, many in Wisconsin and some in states as far as New York or Arizona. Some students choose to further their education at an advanced level in athletic training or a related field. During your education, the athletic training faculty and staff will work with you to determine your career goals and help you attain them.

We pride ourselves on preparing students to successfully pass the national Board of Certification (BOC) examination and enter the workforce.
