Program goals

Gifted Education aims to increase certification rate compared to industry standard self-led study.

Our goal is to take students from baseline to certified in 12-14 weeks, leaving 2-4 weeks in the semester to review & take practice tests.

We also offer one-on-one guidance through overlooked pieces of the process:

  • CPR certification, registering for the exam
  • Finding a test site near you
  • Staying on top of CEUs
  • Paying the correct membership dues, etc.

CONTINUING

EDUCATION &

MENTORING

 

Students will be able to access our mentoring group led by industry professionals and subject matter experts upon passing their certification exam.

Our goal is to create a group that will provide an interdisciplinary network for graduates as they begin their careers.

    TESTIMONIALS

    words from our clients

    BRIANDA V.

    CSCS Tutoring Client

    “I am grateful to Instructor Matt Stratton and the Gifted Education staff for putting together a structured course with weekly 1-on-1 video sessions, detailed chapter outlines, review questions, and 2 mock exams.  During our first session, Matt took the time to know my “Why” in pursuing a CSCS Certification and made it a personable experience. I benefited most when Matt and I would review test questions and go over why something was wrong. I knew I was prepared going into the exam and passed both sections with flying colors.  Whether you have an exercise physiology background or not, I highly recommend the Gifted Education course to anyone looking to obtain a CSCS!”

    I give the Gifted Performance CSCS prep course 5 stars and two thumbs up. I scored an 86 on the foundations exam and an 85 on the applied exam, and I would not have passed had it not been for this course. I literally got to sit down with an Exercise Science professor and learn Strength and Conditioning 1-on-1. It does not get any better.

    CSCS Tutoring Client

    When it comes to learning, I could never be handed just a book to figure it out on my own. This is why I’m thankful I chose to work with Gifted for my CSCS certification. They did an amazing job making 24 chapters of material digestible & easy to understand. Each week I was given material to go through at my own pace & practice questions to test my knowledge and then I met with my instructor over a video call to go over anything I didn’t fully understand. This helped me tremendously with understanding a number of different topics & the specific verbiage that the CSCS uses. My instructor also used his own experience to give me tips & tricks on how to understand the material & pass the test. The CSCS preparation course was worth the investment.
