CSCCa CEU Program Information

The CSCCa has a Continuing Education Units (CEU) program in place for maintaining SCCC certification. We are now well into the third and final year of the current 3-year CEU reporting period, which will end July 31, 2016. This program was implemented to further enhance the credibility and validity of the SCCC certification program as well as to meet ICE accreditation standards. Information and details regarding the CEU program are posted on the CSCCa website.

All SCCC certified individuals are strongly encouraged to review this information and contact the CSCCa National Office with any questions or concerns. As a reminder, one of the CEU requirements is attendance at a minimum of one CSCCa National Conference within each 3-year CEU cycle. SCCC certificants with extenuating circumstances preventing fulfillment of this requirement must submit an appeal to the CSCCa National Office for review by the Certification Commission prior to the 2016 National Conference.

Reports regarding progress in fulfilling the current CEU requirements are sent to all SCCC certified individuals regularly, the latest having been emailed December 21, 2015. If you did not receive this report, please contact the CSCCa National Office immediately. Another report will be sent to SCCC certified individuals shortly after the CSCCa National Conference in May.

All CEU requirements, including a CPR/First Aid/AED card/certificate current on July 31, 2016, must be submitted to the CSCCa National Office by 5:00 p.m. (MDT), July 31, 2016. Information regarding CEU requirements, along with information emphasizing the importance and value of the SCCC certification, has been sent to athletic directors. We are hopeful that this information will encourage their support for SCCC certified staff members at their institutions attending the CSCCa National Conference each year, as this will be the easiest and most effective way to obtain CEU credit and maintain SCCC Certification, which is accredited by the National Commission of Certifying Agencies (NCCA).

If you need to obtain additional CEUs, here is an extensive list of options for obtaining CEU credit as well as how to go about reporting the activity for credit. Below are a few of the most frequently utilized options for obtaining CEUs.

The CSCCa recognizes that there is a wide variety of clinics and courses that greatly benefit the continuing education of collegiate and professional strength and conditioning coaches. Consequently, the CSCCa Education Board approves events and courses on a case-by-case basis. If you would like to be awarded credit for a course or clinic not listed above, please send us everything you have on the clinic or course (itinerary, syllabus etc.) and we will send it to the CSCCa Education Board for approval.
