Accreditation adds value to a program and institution. CASCE accreditation is chosen by programs looking to be seen as a leader in strength and conditioning education. The high-level quality assurance of accreditation provides students (prospective, current, and graduates) the confidence in their choice of institution. And ultimately, only graduates of CASCE accredited programs will qualify to sit for the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) exam. This ensures that the industry is supplied with professionals who know how to safeguard their athletes from unnecessary injury, while elevating the credibility and necessity of the profession in the eyes of the public.
