     The ideal candidate is someone who is currently enrolled or completed an undergaduate or graduate college degree program in Exercise Science or related field of study and needs a professional internship for college credits or to stay relevant in the field of collegiate strength and conditioning.  Exceptions may be made for anyone who has a background in strength and conditioning, athletics and has a strong work ethic and desire to break into the field.  These candidates will be evaluated on a case by case basis.  Other preferred qualifications include certification from a recognized governing body, (NSCA, ACSM, USAW, CsCCa, etc.), CPR/AED certification, previous intern or coaching experience, former personal athletic experience.
