Tactical Strength and Conditioning (TSAC)
I am in the process of studying for the CSCS exam. My work and educational background include twenty years of service in the U.S. Army (I retired in 2002). I have been employed as a police officer since my retirement and, I possess a Bachelor Degree in Criminal Justice.
My desire is to obtain the CSCS certification and also the TSAC-F certification so that I may work with and train Law enforcement entities within the State of Wisconsin where I reside. However, I am unclear if one must possess the CSCS certification first. If not, would it benefit me to take the TSAC-F exam first and then obtain the CSCS certification.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
you can obtain the TSAC-F without the CSCS. But I would recommend getting both as they are both highly recognized in the field and will bring nothing but value to your ability to be a great coach. I ti always wise learn from boths aspects (athletics and tactical) as one can learn from each.
hope it helps
