Certificate of Achievement
Effective Fall 2020
The Certificate of Achievement in Athletic Training/Sports Medicine is designed be taken in conjunction with the Associate in Arts in Kinesiology for Transfer to prepare students to apply to an Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) in the CSU system and to complete a baccalaureate degree in Athletic Training or a similar major. Students who obtain the Associate in Arts in Kinesiology for Transfer in conjunction with the Certificate of Achievement in Athletic Training/Sports Medicine will have completed the common core of lower division courses required for a CSU baccalaureate degree in Kinesiology and most prerequisites required for admission into an ATEP program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). General education requirements should be selected carefully based on the intended four-year institution and desired ATEP program. Participation in Kinesiological classes develops critical thinking, personal growth, research abilities, manual therapy skills, and an understanding of working in a clinical and athletic setting. Students should talk with a counselor to determine whether or not this certificate and degree combination is the best option for their academic goals and to ensure efficiency.
Career opportunities include work in hospital emergency departments, intercollegiate athletics, law enforcement and military, occupational and industrial settings, performing arts, physician offices, professional sports, secondary schools, sports medicine clinics, corporate settings, community outreach, and health and fitness related jobs.
