We're Different (in a good way!)

Yes, we know how attaining CEC's can make you feel!

UESCA does not require continuing education credits (CECs) to maintain a current UESCA certification, at least not in the traditional sense. This however, is not representative of UESCA not taking continuing education seriously. We take education very seriously!

It is our belief that while attaining CEC's is a valid way to learn, CEC's are often acquired with the sole purpose of maintaining a current certification and not always with the intent on learning and retaining information.

It is also the belief of UESCA that individuals are more inspired to learn and retain information when the subject is something they are genuinely interested in and are an active part of the learning process.

The Paper

UESCA requires that all certified individuals write a short paper (1000-3000 words - not including a bibliography) every two years on a topic related to endurance sport training.
