Brendon’s Answer

I don't believe so, all Athletic Trainers must graduate from a Professional Degree recognized by CAAPTE (Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education.) Most of these programs are 4-year, although many are transitioning to a Master's program. (However, as long as you are enrolled as a freshman by 2022, you will not be required to earn a Master's. See: http://caate.net/becoming-an-athletic-trainer/)


You can find a list of all the accredited athletic training programs here: http://caate.net/find-programs/
And more information on becoming licensed here: https://www.nata.org/about/athletic-training/obtain-certification


I hope that helps! Let me know if you have other questions.
