Accreditation Volunteer Leadership Positions 

Volunteer with CASCE to make a difference in strength and conditioning education.

In July 2018, the NSCA announced an upcoming change to the eligibility rules for the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist® (CSCS®) exam. Beginning in 2030 (target date), candidates will be required to graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in a strength and conditioning related field, from a program accredited by an NSCA-approved accrediting agency.

In line with this initiative, the Council on Accreditation of Strength and Conditioning Education (CASCE, pronounced kass-key) was formed to serve the need for programmatic accreditation specifically for strength and conditioning. CASCE has since begun accepting applications from institutions seeking programmatic accreditation.

NSCA Foundation Volunteer Leadership Opportunities

Founded in 2007, the NSCA Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to providing funding to NSCA members taking part in educational and research endeavors. A major goal of the Foundation is to maximize assets to increase grants and scholarships for NSCA members. Donations come from contributors and selected sponsors who are also dedicated to science and research. With the growth of the Foundation, the NSCA has the ability to give back to its membership, affirming its mission of being the worldwide authority on strength and conditioning, supporting and disseminating research-based knowledge and its practical application to improve athletic performance and fitness.

NSCA volunteer leadership opportunities are open to NSCA members.
