Athletic Trainers

Athletic trainers specialize in preventing, diagnosing, and treating muscle and bone injuries and illnesses. Many athletic trainers work in educational settings, such as colleges, universities, elementary schools, and secondary schools.

Nearly all states require athletic trainers to have a license or certification; requirements vary by state. The median annual wage for athletic trainers was $46,630 in May 2017. Employment of athletic trainers is projected to grow 23 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations. Demand for athletic trainers is expected to increase as people become more aware of the effects of sports-related injuries, and as the middle-aged and older population remains active.

Employment of coaches and scouts is projected to grow 13 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations.
