The National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) is a non-profit professional organization dedicated to advancing the strength and conditioning profession around the world.
Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists® (CSCS®) are professionals who apply scientific knowledge to train athletes for the primary goal of improving athletic performance. They conduct sport-specific testing sessions, design and implement safe and effective strength training and conditioning programs and provide guidance regarding nutrition and injury prevention. Recognizing that their area of expertise is separate and distinct, CSCS® consult with and refer athletes to other professionals when appropriate.
During his time at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College Dr. Jordan Kersten also became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) certified through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).
