If you are looking for a career in Strength & Conditioning or looking to add a Strength & Conditioning Certification to your CV, then attaining an internationally recognised qualification in Strength & Conditioning is vitally important. Elite Performance Institute (EPI) is the leading provider of Strength & Conditioning Certification Courses and the NCSC Course was devised to set the highest standards of professional practice for Strength & Conditioning coaches.
NCSC Exam Registration:
The National Certificate in Strength & Conditioning (NCSC) Certification Exam is only available to coaches who have completed NCSC – Phase 1 & 2 courses. The NCSC Certification exam consists of:
- Multiple choice written exam
- Practical Olympic weightlifting assessment
Multiple Choice Exam:
The multiple choice exam assesses all theoretical content delivered on both the Phase 1 and Phase 2 courses. The written exam is one hour in duration.
The practical exam will assess coaches ability to demonstrate either the Clean or the Snatch. Coaches will be also be assessed on their Olympic lifting “technical” and “coaching” models as derived from EPI. The practical exam is half an hour in duration.
EPI have exceptionally high standards, as a result there are significant demands on our coaches to attain our National Certificate in Strength & Conditioning (NCSC). Coaches must attain ≥70% on both the multiple choice exam and the practical exam to be rewarded with their NCSC qualification. Those who fail to meet these standards will have to repeat one or both parts of the exam.
