Master required knowledge before the NSCA-CPT and CSCS exams

The NSCA-CPT and CSCS certifications are widely recognized as the esteemed credentials for personal trainers and strength and conditioning professionals in the United States and increasingly around the world. The National Strength and Conditioning Association and Human Kinetics have jointly developed two online courses to help candidates study and prepare for the NSCA-CPT and CSCS examinations.


NSCA’s Certified Personal Trainer (NSCA-CPT) Online Study Course works in tandem with the material presented in NSCA’s Essentials of Personal Training, Second Edition.


NSCA’s Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) Online Study Course works in tandem with the material presented in Essentials of Strength Training and Conditioning, Fourth Edition.


Current NSCA-certified professionals who complete either course and pass the test can also earn continuing education units (CEUs) to apply toward recertification, including CEUs for the "Recertify with Distinction" program.
