The national strength and conditional association (NSCA) CSCS credential is highly viewed in the sport industry. The American Council on Exercise has a sport conditioning CEC bundle as well.
As a specialty that works with a given population such as athletes just taking CEC’s is plenty unless your entering into the sport industry. Additionally with in the sport conditioning area you have to have a specialization into a given sport such as baseball to understand the mechanical principles involved.
If you understand the why and the how and can justify the drills you are doing.
