Prepare to sit for NSCA TSAC-F certification
PennWest California is the first 100% online degree program to offer the tactical strength and conditioning (TSAC) program as a concentration in PennWest California’s M.S. in Exercise Science and Health Promotion curriculum.
Graduates who complete the master’s degree program and meet NSCA criteria will be eligible to sit for the certification exam for NSCA Tactical Strength and Conditioning Facilitators.
New safety guidelines in emergency fields require all coaching personnel to have certifications and advanced education. The prestigious NSCA TSAC-F certification addresses those standards and will meet certification requirements for coaches once the NSCA’s quality initiative takes effect in 2030.
