Course Description

The ClinicalAthlete Weightlifting Certification (CWC) is a direct extension of the core ClinicalAthlete mission: Integrating the realms of clinical practice and athletic performance.

This two-day, intensive course will leave you with new tools to optimize movement, positioning, and performance for the Snatch and Clean & Jerk; as well as safely manage common weightlifting injuries.

Upon successful completion, attendees will earn the designation of Certified ClinicalAthlete Weightlifting Coach (CCWC), which entails proficiency in understanding how to screen, improve movement through corrective strategies, and transition a client, athlete, or themselves through the spectrum of weightlifting from regressions, modifications, and variations to performance in Olympic-style weightlifting.

This course is appropriate for any coach, clinician, or athlete looking to improve weightlifting performance and reduce risk of injury; and the ClinicalAthlete name ensures the material will be science-based.

CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT:

Athletic Trainers:

  • Pre-approved CEUs are currently pending for Athletic Trainers. This page will be updated once approval is final.

NSCA:

  • Per the NSCA, you may report your CWC attendance for possible CEU credit when re-certifying your NSCA membership. You are not guaranteed approval due to the fact that the CWC course is not pre-approved by the NSCA (because of the word 'certification'). However, we have had an almost identical course approved in the past, that you may reference for proof that the curriculum is approved. The past course that was approved is identified as: #E1026
