In brief: There are many.
Some are virtually bogus, while others excellent.
The national strength and conditioning association probably has the best, and this is virtually rquired for college athletic trainers working with a variety of athletes. To become certified, you are sent dvds, several books, a formal course is offered, and you take an exam. If passed, you become a certified strength and conditioning coach (cscc).
