Level One Certification

Level One Certification provides a basic introduction to the ShortGolf program and equipment. This course takes you step-by-step through our first-touch golf program, providing detailed training guides and video demonstrations that simplify the way we learn and teach this lifetime sport…

ShortGolf is super easy to use, and so is this course!


How Does the Level One Certification Course Work

The Basic Training is divided into 4 modules – approximately one per 2 hour increments – which means it should only take  4 – 8 hours to learn how to teach with the ShortGolf program! (Of course, you are free to work at your own pace, for completion within two weeks.)

Each module takes you through the various principles of  ShortGolf, slowly helping you to understand what the program is all about. It also helps you to provide instruction with measurable results by providing resources to assess student fundamental skill development.

Each module’s training guides are in video, text, and visual presentation format, which assists with proper technique during demonstrations and assessment.
