Accredited NUCAP Courses

Graduates from NUCAP-accredited courses

Graduates from NUCAP-accredited courses must submit their individual applications to ESSA for credentialing as an Accredited Exercise Scientist (AES) and/or credentialing as an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP), as relevant to the accreditation status of the course completed, within two years of completing the accredited course. 

Graduates will not be able to apply to ESSA for AEP credentialing if they do not submit their application to ESSA within two years after completing the accredited course.

After two years following completion of an accredited course, individuals will still be able to apply to ESSA for AES credentialing; however, this will be through the individual application route as a non-NUCAP applicant, and the applicant may need to satisfy additional criteria. 

Important note regarding course re-accreditation applications that currently remain in process

Course re-accreditation applications are currently in progress for a number of courses listed below that are nearing their accreditation expiry, or where the accreditation period has expired. Please note that in these instances, regardless of the accreditation expiry the accreditation of these courses will remain current until NUCAP has finalised outcomes for these re-accreditation applications. These courses are identified by *** after the course name.
