Athletic Training Program

Independence Community College’s Athletic Training Program is designed to offer students a career specializing in the care and prevention of injuries for athletes.  Perfect for the sports enthusiasts, this career also offers employment opportunities in industry.  This allied health career focuses on the trainer being the first response to an accident or injury for initially diagnosing the damage and providing preventative measures to prevent further injury.

When not directly dealing with an injury in the workplace or on the playing field, athletic trainers often work to educate people on how to avoid common injuries such as sprains, strains and other job or sports related injuries.

Independence Community College offers an Associate of Science Degree in Athletic Training with an emphasis in sports medicine, emergency care, and injury prevention. ICC student trainers receive valuable academic instruction as well as practical experience and hands-on-training through involvement with the college’s sports teams.
