Program Description
Students gain knowledge through real-life experiences in the prevention, recognition, treatment, rehabilitation and administration of athletic, as well as non-athletic, common injuries and conditions. Under the direction of a nationally certified and state-licensed Athletic Trainer, students develop both basic and advanced skills in the lab setting during the first year. Instruction in the second year focuses on individual career exploration outside of the classroom with local professionals in medical, clinical and fitness facilities. Students receive a total of two science advanced/honors credits for Anatomy and Physiology I & II. Specific academic courses embedded into this two-year initiative include: Human
Anatomy and Physiology, Medical Terminology, Exercise and Athletic Training, and Fitness Evaluation and Assessment. These courses are in academic and clinical alignment to standards set by the Ohio Department of Education. Currently, there are a total of nine postsecondary credits available based upon successful completion of this rigorous Career-Technical Education program. Additional post-secondary credits may apply to universities with articulated agreements with AHCF and the Six District Educational Compact.
