The LPGA Teacher Education Program (TEP)


For over 50 years, the LPGA has developed and enhanced golf education for teachers, coaches and leaders of the game of golf. The LPGA Teacher Education Program (TEP) has become the most comprehensive and dynamic golf education series in the industry. 

The TEP utilizes research-based theory to identify the core competencies required to be an effective teacher, coach, and leader by incorporating interactive practical applications into the program content. This series is designed to help golf professionals meet the demands of today’s market.

The program consists of the Teaching Certification, which requires completion of three levels:  Level I - Core Education, Level II and Level III.


All applicants are required to take Level I - Core Education. This program provides basic knowledge in the areas of fitness, biomechanics and kinetics of the golf swing, and equipment fitting. Participants are introduced to the psychological aspects of performance (the head game) and taught communication skills required for leadership and success within the golf industry.  Students will enjoy a combination of classroom lectures and practical application on the golf range to enhance the learning process. LPGA history, policies and standards of professionalism and personal development are presented and a tour of LPGA Headquarters and introduction to LPGA Staff is included.


Our Teaching Certification develops expertise in communication and golf instruction.  Professionals acquire the skills needed to create dynamic golf education programs, whether through employment in an existing golf school or pro shop or by establishing an independent business. Beginning with understanding the concepts of motor learning and golf biomechanics, teaching pros learn a myriad of skills to help them deliver personalized, results-oriented instruction that fits the changing needs of their students/clients. These topics include swing analysis, sports psychology, club fitting, fitness for golf and much more.


The LPGA continues its global expansion with the LPGA Teaching and Club Professionals division, which now has an Approved Education Provider in South Korea. LPGA Master Professional Jay Na is the Approved Education Provider for the LPGA Teaching and Club Professional (T&CP) membership in South Korea. In this role, Na will help to schedule, promote and conduct LPGA Teaching and Club Professional education and certification programs throughout Korea and Southeast Asia.
