Since its inception in 2002, CSEE has been the only certification available for experienced sport tourism professionals seeking continuing education and professional development in the field of sport tourism. The NASC Staff and Professional Development committee develop curriculum for each course.
The NASC is dedicated to raising the standards of professionalism in the sport tourism industry through the CSEE program. In 2015, the NASC announced the establishment of a partnership with Ohio University to provide expertise in online learning and reviews of each live learning session.
Participants who enroll January 2016 or later will be required to complete three core courses and five topical courses. Live and online courses are offered throughout the year.
**Participants who were enrolled prior to January 2016 will maintain all previous course credits. Each module taken prior to 2016 will count as 4 credits. For example, if a participant enrolled prior to January 2016 completed 4 modules, they would now have 16 credits. There will not be a requirement to complete the three core/mandatory courses but may enroll in any of them for CSEE credit.
