NASC Course Overview

Athletic Performance Education Company (APEC) can provide you with the accreditation to help build your theoretical and practical strength and conditioning knowledge. The National Accreditation in Strength & Conditioning (NASC) course was specifically designed to aid international strength & conditioning coaches and fitness professionals in both practical and theoretical strength & conditioning knowledge and skills. The NASC course is the most highly sought after and widely recognized qualification for strength & conditioning professionals within the fitness industry.

 

Strength & Conditioning Courses

The NASC is aimed at fitness professionals who want to work with youth, amateur,  semi-professional and professional athletes. Both levels of our NASC were designed specifically and meticulously to create a standardized approach to strength & conditioning coaches and industry professionals.

 

Course Structure

The NASC strength and conditioning courses are broken down into two phases, both of which run during a 2-day period. Upon completion of both phase 1 and phase 2, there will be a 1-day examination to assess your progress and assure you have gained the right knowledge from the course.

Academic Partner - National Academy Of Sports Medicine

National Accreditation in Strength & Conditioning Course – Exam/Assessment Day

Upon completion of Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the NASC program, an exam/assessment will be administered to each participant. Successful completion of the exam/assessment will award you with the NASC – ASCS accreditation widely recognized within sports worldwide.

The exam/assessment is broken down into two separate sections, focusing on material found in both Phase 1 and Phase 2: the first being a multiple-choice questionnaire covering the theoretical elements of the course, and the second, a practical examination in which you will be asked to demonstrate some of the various movement skills covered in the NASC course.

Once accredited, you will join an elite group of coaches, fitness professional, dedicated researchers and educators, and top athletes as an Accredited Strength & Conditioning Specialist (ASCS)

 

Multiple Choice Exam/Assessment

On the multiple-choice exam/assessment you will be required to complete a 1-hour exam whereby you will be questioned on theoretical content covered in both Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the courses.

 

Practical Exam/Assessment

The practical exam will assess your ability to actively demonstrate the skills learned within Phase 1 and Phase 2, assessing how accurately and effectively you can apply the knowledge you have learned, as well as an overall judgment of the movement skills covered in both levels of the NASC. The exam/assessment will last for 30 minutes.
