    Service members investigating career opportunities in strength and conditioning and personal training can now use the Post-9/11 GI Bill to obtain a TSAC-F certification. The TSAC-F certification is a gateway to a career that gives you the opportunity to serve in a new capacity, by increasing the performance capability, readiness and longevity of the tactical community – including military, fire and rescue, law enforcement, protective services, and other emergency personnel. 

    The NSCA’s TSAC program offers the only nationally accredited certification in tactical strength and conditioning. This evidence-based certification has been developed in close coordination with leaders and experts in military, law enforcement, and fire/EMS.
