Feisel said there are three levels of student workers in the training room. The levels are based on knowledge and experience. Level one workers receive a $300 per month stipend and have a basic level of skill. Level two workers receive a $400 per month stipend and have the knowledge of taping shoulders and legs. Level three workers receive a $500 per month stipend and have the knowledge of basic wrist, shoulder, ankle and knee evaluations
Barfknecht said students workers in the training room are not professional trainers; however, they are certified in first aid and CPR and have some experience in taping ankles and thumbs. These are normal issues that could arise at a game or practice, he said.
Columbia College students who are interested in working in the athletic training room can see Barfknecht in his office in the Southy Fitness Center for more information.
