Athletic Training Education Program

Pre-Athletic Training Learning Community

Basic Taping Skills Are Learned Early in the Athletic Training Education ProgramOnce again, Fort Lewis College will be sponsoring a learning community during the fall term specifically designed for incoming college freshmen students interested in pursuing Athletic Training.  The cluster consists of the two (2) athletic training courses (AT 205 & AT 224) plus a 1 credit general studies course taught by the Athletic Training Program faculty.  The cluster course grouping consists of 6 credit hours which allows the student to take additional courses as electives or towards their general education requirements.  If you are interested in becoming a part of the Pre-Athletic Training Learning Community here at Fort Lewis College, please contact the Athletic Training Education Program Director, Dr. Carrie Meyer, for further information.
