McDaniel College has met the criteria for acceptance into the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) Education Recognition Program (ERP) that recognizes regionally accredited academic institutions for their educational programs that meet this organization’s educational guidelines. McDaniel is one of only two colleges recognized statewide and the only college in the Centennial Conference.

According to Dr. Steve McCole, associate professor and department chair of Exercise Science and Physical Education (EPE), this recognition endorses the college’s coursework in fitness and conditioning and will lead to more students who wish to earn certification in personal training and strength and conditioning.

“These are areas that our students, and prospective students, have regularly asked about over the last several years,” said McCole.

“With new courses and new faculty in these areas, we can say that one of the world’s leading organizations in strength and conditioning has recognized that our programs can provide the necessary education to be successful in these fields. ”

Graduates of this program will also be able to sit for NSCA’s nationally recognized certification exams at a reduced rate. 

McDaniel offered the first physical training course in 1885, and its academic degree programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels were among the first in Maryland.

NSCA, based in Colorado Springs, Colo., is the world leading membership organization for strength coaches, personal trainers, researchers and educators, and publishes several journals. The educational endorsement is for three years and may be renewed.
