Becoming a good S&C coach is not something you can do over night..In my experience you cannot become a "real" S&C coach through attending a weekend seminar..it takes years to learn and fully comprehend the physiological and biomechanical basis of training. Not to mention the time spent "under the bar" finding out what works for youself.If you're serious about becoming a decent S&C enroll yourself in a university that offers a good sport science degree, find an elite team where you can intern/shadow the S&C team in your spare time, and constantly read/attend/watch everything you can get your hands on (research papers, books, seminars, dvds etc..)

Agree...the best S&C coaches will have a scientific background, with good understanding of movement, biomechanics and physiology.
Of all the qualifications out there, the JC Santana is the best MMA-specific certification backed by years of JC's experience and knowledge, as well as his "no-bull" attitude delivered with passion.
