If you are looking for a career in strength & conditioning or looking to add strength & conditioning services to your existing practice, then attaining a professional certificate in strength & conditioning coach is a vital career step. Elite Performance Institute (EPI) is the leading provider of strength & conditioning CPD courses and our courses were devised to set the highest professional standards of practice for S&C coaches.
Our National Certificate in Strength & Conditioning (NCSC) exam assesses individuals who have completed both Phase 1 and Phase 2 S&C 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.
