Other

In order to maintain a certification, the NSCA requires that all certificants complete a certain number of Continuing Education Units (CEUs) every three years.The purpose of continuing education is to require that certified individuals stay abreast of evolving knowledge and skills in the profession, and to promote the ongoing competency of those certified. Because scientific knowledge, training techniques, and equipment are continuously evolving in strength and conditioning, periodic reporting of continuing education is needed to ensure that certified individuals are continually competent.
