In recognition of the extreme dedication to professional career building in spite of time constraints placed on many of its members, the NASE uses a practical approach to ensure continued individual growth and development as the main means of maintaining certification in Speed and Explosive Power Sprinting in All Sports.
The purpose of the 3-year renewal program is to encourage members to remain current and be aware of new concepts, principles, theories and techniques in the area of speed improvement for sports competition.
How & When to Renew
Every 3 years, NASE-Certified Speed Specialist (NASE-CSS) applicants record key activities that have occurred since their previous certification date on the NASE Certification Renewal Application Form below, mailing the completed form with payment to NASE Headquarters. At this time, NASE Certification cannot be renewed online via our NASE Shop. We carefully review your renewal form, contacting you if additional information is needed before mailing your new NASE-CSS Certificate.
Steps: 1) You must have a current NASE membership to re-certify. The free membership provided with your initial certification fee expires after one year. Check your records to determine if your NASE Membership is current. If you are unsure about your NASE membership status, please email our NASE Website Coordinator at LynneMohn@gmail.com and she will be happy to check our records for you. If your membership is current, your 3-Yr NASE Certification Renewal will cost $39.00;
2) If your membership has expired, please follow the instructions on the Certification Renewal Form by adding the NASE Membership fee ($39.95) to the NASE-CSS Renewal fee ($39.00) then mail a check with the form to the NASE, P.O. Box 1784, Kill Devil Hills, NC 27948;
