USAW cert?

Does anyone have any experience with usa weightliftings sports performance coaches certification? I am a level 1 Crossfit trainer and recently enrolled in the sports performance certification. I received all my materials for the class a few days ago and was looking for some pointers as to what to study for the test. Any help would be great, thanks.

We have a trainer with that cert here at CrossFit BWI. From what I understand, it's a pretty basic test, similar to most of the other generic PT certifications. Study your vocab (muscles, metabolic systems, etc.), the rest should be pretty easy. Honestly, if it was me, I'd try to switch over to the Club Coach cert.

The Club Coach ain't much better.
There is no substitute for strength, and no excuse for the lack of it.
