To become Golf Injury Certified you will need to complete the Advanced Training seminar and pass the written Certification Examination. The content for the Advanced Training seminar was taped from a live, 3-Day Advanced Training seminar. I have selected 8-hours of video for you to watch and a seminar workbook has been provided for you to take notes as you follow along.
The Advanced Training seminar has been designed for the doctor who wants to establish and grow a referral relationship with the PGA instructors in their community. The PGA instructors are working with hundreds of golf students who are not physically fit or conditioned to play golf. It is difficult for instructors to teach golf to students who present for lessons with postural instability, structural weakness and poor flexibility. Before long, students become frustrated and perhaps injured.
“I’ve been teaching golf for more than 20 years. I can honestly say that lack of proper golf-specific fitness and conditioning has been responsible of over 50% of every poor golf swing.”

The Golf Injury Certification Program is designed for you to be able to cross-train your medical expertise with PGA instructors. In addition, you will learn how to market your expertise as a Golf Injury Specialist. You will learn how to set up and co-teach preventative workshops on golf fitness and conditioning with the PGA instructors in your community.
The Advanced Training seminar has been divided into 4 parts. Note - some of the chapters are a "live-seminar" review of course work previously covered in Basic and Intermediate Training. You might find that the live presentation, using student case studies, will expand your understanding of the material.
