NAU First Aid Tech Program for Athletic Training
Are you interested in exploring a career in Athletic Training? The First Aid Tech (FAT) program is a select internship offering full time enrolled NAU students an opportunity to participate in the daily functions of an NCAA Division I sports healthcare facility. You will experience the daily tasks required of college Athletic Trainers and learn basic skills allowed within AZ Licensure Laws. The first month is a provisional trial period introducing you to the profession and work place expectations. At the conclusion of the first month and thereafter, you must demonstrate continued interest in your own growth and an aptitude to matriculate toward becoming a Certified Athletic Trainer. Once admitted, you will be mentored and encouraged to expand your knowledge through additional coursework (AT-200) or in-services, etc. Admittance will also require a face to face meeting with a clinical staff person from the NAU Sports Medicine Program and an orientation.
