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

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 Teaching Certification entails completing three (3) levels of in-person and at-home self-study requirements. The Level I program provides basic knowledge in Golf Skill Learning and bio-mechanics and kinetics of the golf swing. Participants are also introduced to the psychological aspects of performance and taught the communication skills required for leadership and success within the golf industry. Students will enjoy a combination of classroom lectures and practical applications on the golf range to enhance learning. LPGA history, policies, standards of professionalism, and personal development are presented, and a tour of LPGA Headquarters and an introduction to LPGA Staff is included.

Levels II and III of the Teaching Certification provide a foundation for the LPGA Integrated Performance System (IPS). Professionals acquire the skills needed to create dynamic golf education programs through employment in an existing golf school or pro shop or establishing an independent business. Teaching pros learn a myriad of skills, beginning with understanding the concepts of motor learning and golf biomechanics, that help them deliver personalized, results-oriented instruction that fits the changing needs of their students/clients. These topics include swing analysis, psychology, club fitting, golf fitness, and more.

LPGA Education Programs are open to all LPGA Applicants, LPGA members, and non-members.
