PGA Class A Professionals
Seeking LPGA Membership

PGA Class A members are exempt from the Level I and II education programs and testing. The LPGA T&CP will provide PGA Class A members with the Level I & II manuals (as digital copies only) in order to prepare for the Level III testing requirements. The online knowledge checks serve as a study guides to review this material; they are not pass/fail.

The Level III Practical Evaluation is where the member will give two (2) golf lessons and will be graded based on the 12 components of an LPGA Lesson. These components are listed and explained in detail here.

The information to execute each of these components are laid out in the logical progression of a lesson throughout the 16 chapters of the 3 LPGA manuals (provided as digital copies only).

The chart below lists the 7 required and recommended requirements to complete the LPGA T&CP Class A certification.
