Home Study Course Professional Golf Teaching




Full certification as a Class “A” PGTAA Master Teaching Professional is awarded upon the successful completion of the Open Book written test and Playing Ability Test (PAT). The PAT can be taken on your home course or any course in the world that is over 6,000 yards. For the exact PAT requirements, visit https://www.pgtaa.com/playing-ability-test/

Completion of the Home Study Course allows entry to, and is a prerequisite for the On-Site Course. The tuition for the On-Site Course is an additional $1500.00 as the $995.00 for the Home Study Course has already been paid, thereby making a total cost of $2495.00.

No On-Site course attendance is required to become a fully certified Class “A” PGTAA Master Teaching Professional! All you need is to successfully complete the Home Study Course.

The On-Site course is an option and is not a requirement to becoming a fully certified Class “A” PGTAA Master Teaching Professional

To reiterate, successful completion of the Home Study Course bestows your certification as a fully certified Class “A” PGTAA Master Teaching Professional.

This is not an Online Course.  A USB thumb drive, plus 8+ lbs. of written course materials are shipped to you after you have enrolled.  In the USA, the materials take an average of 3 days from enrolling until you receive the course materials.
