The Poliquin International Certification Program was first designed to internationally recognize strength coaches who demonstrate the knowledge and skills to effectively train athletes worldwide.
P.I.C.P now takes distinction in giving strength coaches and personal trainers the highest quality of education. The program provides our coaches and trainers with unsurpassed skills in teaching methodology, client assessments and program design.
It is the mission of the Poliquin International Certification Program to globally foster and educate our strength coaches and personal trainers. Providing them with superior education and practical application, in turn will raise the level of sport performance and healthy lifestyle ideas. Poliquin Performance was founded on this philosophy and continues to be our driving force to help us remain the world leader in strength and conditioning education. The certifications range from Regional to International levels.
Levels 1 to 3 are designed for strength coaches who work with developing athletes going from regional level to national level. Each one of these levels has a theory, technical and practical component. There is a diploma issued when each Level is fully completed.
Levels 4 to 5 are for well-established strength coaches interested in coaching at the International or the professional sports level. They are geared for highly qualified strength coaches. By the end of level 5, the strength coach has completed 12 tasks. The P.I.C.P. is the only certification program that requires strength coaches to produce results in the athletic realm to fully qualify.
