How the ISSA Strength and Conditioning Works

We know that balancing your studies with an already busy schedule can be a challenge, which is why we designed a flexible, self-paced online course schedule that allows you up to 12 months to finish the program so you can study when, where, and how often you'd like. Here's how the program works:

  • 1

    Get Instant Access and Start Studying Right Away

    Study online or with the included textbooks. With 1-2 hours of studying per day, most students finish in just 8-10 weeks. Feel free to study at your own pace.

  • 2

    Complete Quizzes and Test Your Comprehension

    We offer multiple online practice quizzes throughout the course to completely prepare you for the final exam and for real life coaching and helping.

  • 3

    Take the Open-Book, Untimed Final Exam from Anywhere

    You read that correctly - the final exam is online, open-book, untimed, and can be completed over multiple sessions! You can even go back and change any answer, at any time, before you submit your exam. If you don't pass the first time, we even allow you to re-take the exam.


Accredited Exams
