Review this list of CSCS Exam Frequently Asked Questions below to see if your question has already been answered. I try to keep this page updated whenever I am asked the same question several times.

If you have a question that is not listed below, please use the search bar or use the contact form and I’ll try to get back to you as soon as I can. You can also check out this complete guide to prepare for the certification. It includes all information needed, including prerequisites, format, content, study guides, online courses, and more.

If you have just heard of CSCS:

What is the cerification?

What topics/categories are covered?

If you are not certified, but are looking to become a CSCS:

Where can I take my test?

Can I take the test online?

How much does it cost?

When can I expect my results?

What book(s) do I need to read?

If you have already passed the exam and want to remain certified or become recertified:

How long does the certification last?

Does the NSCA offer any other credentials?

The format and everything else involved with the certification is constantly changing. I make my best effort to keep this updated as frequently as possible (last update – February of 2016), but if you have any questions or just want to double check the information and make sure it is up-to-date, check with the NSCA.
