What are the requirements in order to maintain the CSCS credential?

Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists are required to earn 6.0 CEUs (typically 1 contact hour equals 0.1 CEU) over specific three-year periods (2013 – 2015, 2015 – 2017, etc.) to maintain their certification. Those certified within an existing three-year period will have their initial CEU requirement prorated to the end of the reporting period. In addition to earning and reporting Continuing Education Units (CEUs), or all certified individuals must maintain current adult CPR certification in order to retain the CSCS credential.
