Golf Instructor Certification

Are you thinking about being a golf instructor?

Or, maybe you’re already a golf instructor.

Either way, you owe it to yourself and your students to consider earning your golf instructor certification

What does certification mean to you and to a parent or student contemplating hiring you as their golf instructor?

Basically, golf instructor certification is a process that gives recognition to instructors who meet certain standards. It is a promise that the instructor will provide the quality services that he or she claims to offer.

Golf instructors directly affect the lives of both children and adults. For this reason, the National Registry of Professional Golf Instructors® (NRPGI™) has sought, since it’s organization in 1999, to protect the interests of this segment of the public by setting standards and training persons as golf instructors.

To ensure golf instructors meet basic standards, the NRPGI produces and administers a training and certification program consisting of 267 learning objectives with training exercises.

Instructors who successfully pass the program are authorized to identify themselves by the designation NRPGI-Certified.

NRPGI-Certified golf instructors are dependable and competent educators who have agreed to abide by the organization’s Code of Ethics at all times.

For a golf instructor certified by the NRPGI, the road to certification was both challenging and rewarding.

So, as you can see, when it comes to providing parents and students with the best value, certification is the golf instructor’s best friend.

Golf instructors throughout the United States and other countries are finding that with the NRPGI they always receive individualized, person-to-person attention.

You progress at your own pace. You study at home, practice the techniques with your own students at your local driving range or other suitable location and then send in your completed work for grading.

The registry will spend as much time as is necessary to help you develop your golf instructor skills.

The Full Swing in Slow Motion

This golf player has awesome swings.

Notice just after impact though, how the forward (left) elbow tends to pull back behind the body. This leads to pulled shots and inhibits the downward direction of the clubhead.

The arms should be extended in the direction of the target after impact. Other than that, these are well-executed swings.

Drive the Golf Ball Forward

Every effectively-struck ball (from the full swing at the tee down to the approach putt) has one fundamental characteristic–it was DRIVEN forward.By using the word “driven” the implication is that it was not slapped or flicked, which unfortunately is the striking method used by the majority of golfers.By driving the ball forward you will achieve the proper blend of control and power while keeping the club face on the ball along the desired line of flight.

Keep the above points in mind and you will be on your way to achieving consistent, accurate shot-making.
