"Certified Sports Technology Professional" CSTPsm
The Professional Sports Technology Institute™ is the educational division of the International Sports Technology Association™. We advance careers, improve athletic success and further mature sports technology through our recognized standards, certifications, accreditation, resources, tools, academic research, publications, professional development courses, and networking opportunities.
One of our first steps in developing a career enhancing technology certification is to create a body of knowledge document that outlines coursework, learned skills and on-the-job experiences. To accomplish this task, we have organized an education Council (ICSTE) to identify technology disciplines that impact diverse sports while developing a testing regiment to qualify individuals for certification.
The future CSTPsm certificate and verifiable ID number will be granted to those who meet the standards set forth by the Council and administered via the institute. The successful qualification will enable professional recognition for expert technology knowledge in the field of 'sports technology'.
Additionally, we have begun identifying corporate standards related to an organization’s ability to design, implement, and service technology in sport. We aim to clarify capability and maturity through a technology readiness "mark" that illustrates a technology commitment to the sports industry. Our trust mark is not easily earned, but highly effective when technology know-how needs distinction.
If you would like to take advantage of certification opportunities to set your skills apart enroll in our new institute opening in early 2018. Simply start by requesting an ISTA Membership.
