Athletic Training Major

Final class for the “undergraduate” athletic training major at Truman State University was accepted Fall 2016. Truman now offers a Master of Athletic Training Program.

Truman’s Athletic Training  Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). Upon graduation, 100% of our students are employed or enter into graduate programs in athletic training. Our program prepares you to sit for the athletic training Board of Certification (BOC) exam, and upon passing the exam, you will be a certified athletic trainer.

To become a certified athletic trainer, you must pass the national BOC exam. Truman is very proud of our students’ performance on this exam.  See the table below to learn more about our success.
