A combination of live weekends and on-line learning components totaling 216 hours of study, the Sports Diplomate program provides learners with unique interactive experiences and dedicated hands-on sessions that allow for the ultimate application of knowledge. In addition to the DACBSP® exam given through the ACBSP™, this program also prepares doctors to sit for the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (C.S.C.S.) exam given by the National Strength and Conditioning Association. CCSP® and DACBSP® programs may be taken concurrently.
