EPI's Phase 1 Strength & Conditioning Certification is the first Phase of the National Certificate in Strength & Conditioning (NCSC) qualification. The NCSC Course is based on the best evidence based practice and over 15 years experience working with athletes from all levels. Established in 2012, the NCSC Course has been educating coaches, trainers and healthcare practitoners from around the world and has become the proven course for those looking to become a certified Strength & Conditioning coach.

Many coaches coming on this course are qualified PT's, physiotherapists or sports coaches. However, they don't have the specific training in sports performance. Our goal is to give coaches the underpinning knowledge and practical coaching skills to help improve your athlete or teams level of performance. We'll show you how to make them stronger, faster, fitter and more robust to injury. The NCSC Course focuses on our four pillars: Movement, Strength, Fitness and Recovery. With our 8-step-approach training system, use of technical and coaching models for movement skill development, course participants can seemlessly apply our content into their coaching environment.

The Phase 1 Strength & Conditioning Certification contains more than more than 8 hours of video content with 12 modules and 6 detailed presentations. Each presentation emphasizes a theoretical framework, a program design framework, and best practices around coaching. There is also additional reading material contained in your electronic manuals to support your lecture content. Each practical is filmed from a coach’s perspective and emphasizes key coaching points, demonstration skills, cueing, progressions and regressions.

The Phase 1 Strength & Conditioning Certification has been designed to optimize your learning experience and allow for clarity across all key topics in Strength & Conditioning. You will receive an inside look at EPI's training system, fitness testing protocols, movement screening, acceleration speed, Olympic weightlifting, plyometrics, multi-directional speed, ESD, program design and periodization.

Upon completion of all course modules, your Phase 1 Strength & Conditioning Certification will be made available for printing.
