I have read through their website some and still do not have a full understanding of CEU's. If anyone has this cert and has had to do the CEU's could you explain the least amount of trouble you can go through to obtain your CEU's? I was hoping I could just take a few online quizzes and receive them. Is it that simple? Is it much trouble/money?
Any help is appreciated. Reps for help.

Getting another certification always counts for lots of points...
HINT: Look at "personal Development" where you can claim CEUs from book study, and any other stuff you do on your own
Remember NSCA uses an honor system so whatever you do or claim to do, they may not even verify what you did, but if you cheat the system, and get audited by them, bye bye goes your cert.Contact me about our author Program

There's lots of ways to earn CEUs. You can do online webinars to get some (and they have them every month I think).
For me at least, the best way to recertify is to go to the National Convention. Their European Conference is coming next month and I'm going. Attending earns you the requisite CEUs to recertify. And, because at least half the convention involves actually DOING (i.e. the workshops) rather than listening (the lectures) or taking an exam, you get some great hands on experience. And, of course, you get to interact with some of the best coaches, experts and athletes in the world.
Well worth the money.***Irish Misc Crew***

You can earn four CEUs from online quizzes (category B) per three year period. Each quiz is worth 0.5 CEUs and the cost is $20 per quiz. NSCA keeps taking more and more money every reporting period it seems. I remember when the quizzes were only $15 each.
You will need to find 2.0 CEUs from other categories during that three year period.
I can go into more detail if you are interested.

I took an awesome business and sales course that was only $199 and got me 1.5 CEUs toward NSCA. It was also online so I was able to complete it in 3 days. The course actually taught me a lot about getting more clients too so I highly recommend it. here is the link: fitnessmentors.com/business-and-sales-ceu-course/
Also they had 0.5 free CEUs on the site too if anyone needs just a few credits.

This site provide you with the categories and number of CEUs you can obtain for specific activities.
Book study, reading book, reading research periodicals, etc. yields .5 CEUs per year for a total of 1.5 CEUs in a three year period.
NSCA CEU Online Quizzes
This is one method of obtaining your CEUs.
Overall, I am NOT a fan of the NSCA Quizzes.
My main objective is that many times you have to extrapolate information to determine the correct answer. In other words, NO definitive answer is provided.
The problem lies with a committee of individuals who have no formal training in writing exam questions.
I received my CSCS in 1998. In my 18 years, nothing has changed in the NSCA methodology of writing quiz questions.
Easiest Way To Obtain NSCA Continuing Education Units
The easiest method is attending sanctioned clinics. Sit, listen and learn.
With that said, below is information on the...
2016 Albuquerque Strength and Conditioning Clinic
This is the fifty year of the clinic. It is sanctioned with the NSCA and NASM. Individuals with other Personal Training Certification can obtain CEUs from this even, as well.
