Troy University’s Exercise Physiology program has achieved renewed recognition from the National Strength and Conditioning Association’s (NSCA) Education Recognition Program (ERP).

The NSCA ERP recognizes and distinguishes programs with approved and standardized strength and conditioning or personal training curricula. Recognized programs are designed to prepare students for the NSCA-Certified Personal Trainer (NSCA-CPT) or NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) certifications.

“This program recognition is an additional testament of faculty commitment to student success and professional excellence,” said Dr. LaGary Carter, Dean of the College of Health and Human Services.

The renewal marked the third time the program has been recognized by the organization and is valid for a three-year period through March 31, 2027.

“It has been an honor to serve as the Coordinator and Faculty CSCS Sponsor for the NSCA ERP applications since August 2017,” said TROY Professor Dr. Tyler Martin. “On behalf of the department, the initial application materials were prepared in the fall 2017 and the Exercise Science Program within the Department of Kinesiology & Health Promotion achieved recognition in May 2018 from the NSCA ERP. Renewal applications were approved in May 2021 and May 2024.”

The ERP recognition is the first step in laying the foundation to ensure classroom excellence. With a purposefully designed education, students can look forward to long-term professional success after graduation. The ERP seeks to support this journey through the proper certifications, professional development, and industry connections.

“I would like to thank Dr. Martin for leading the exercise physiology programs effort to set and maintain such a high level of standards in Strength and Conditioning teaching and research,” said Dr. James Sluder, Chair of TROY’s Department of Kinesiology and Health Promotion. “We are honored to continually be recognized by the National Strength and Conditioning  Association for excellence in the field.”
