As the certifying agency of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), the NSCA Certification Commission offers two distinctive credentialing programs. The Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) credential is the certification of choice for professionals who design and implement strength and conditioning programs for athletes; whereas, the NSCA-Certified Personal Trainer (NSCA-CPT) credential is an ideal certification program for those who train active and sedentary clients in one-on-one situations.
The NSCA Certification Commissions prestigious CSCS and NSCA-CPT certifications are the only programs in the fitness industry to be nationally accredited since 1993. They are also the only fitness-related credentials to earn recognition by the National Skill Standards Board. To earn one of these internationally recognized certifications, candidates must pass a rigorous exam administered by an independent exam service.
Earning one of these highly respected credentials could significantly expand your career and income opportunities.
