Becoming a Strength and Conditioning specialist requires in-depth knowledge and experience of fitness and anatomy, posture and technique, and the importance of effective warm-ups and rest periods.

Strength and Conditioning Coaching

The introduction to the Strength and Conditioning CPD course explores the definition and history of strength and conditioning, the purpose and need for professional coaching for athletes, and what personal and technical qualities are required to be an effective strength and conditioning coach.

Preparation and Planning Processes

This extremely important module explores the preparation process based on the relative factors of individual athletes, including exercise selection, training frequency, and load, reps and volume.

Fitness Testing

This two-hour practical workshop teaches you how to identify, partake in and deliver various fitness testing protocols, including shuttle run tests, squat tests and more. Each test is explored in detail covering the protocol, reasoning and validity of the testing method.

Postural Assessments

This section of the CPD workshop explores how to assess a clients posture using the NASM overhead squat test, covering the test itself, the accompanying solutions table and the different muscles being used in exercises and stretches. 

Observational Assessment

The Strength and Conditioning CPD course finishes with a 60-minute long observational assessment where you will be tasked with demonstrating your knowledge of strength and conditioning processes by delivering tests and assessments to your fellow students.

CPD Fitness courses are assessed through an observed assessment on the day of attendance. You will need to demonstrate your skill and competence in front of a qualified teacher and assessor who will lead your training.
