Community Instructor Program

The Community Instructor Program is Australia’s preliminary golf accreditation aimed at increasing the workforce that deliver national participation programs and introduce more people to the game of golf. Primarily aimed at volunteers, the Community Instructor Program delivers online training and assessment items all related specifically to the delivery of the relevant national program.

The Community Instructor Program currently offers accreditations for the following national participation programs:

  • MyGolf Club (National junior program at the golf facility)
  • MyGolf Schools (National junior program in the school environment)
  • Swing Fit (National female participation program)

The Community Instructor Program is designed in a modulated structure so as to allow instructors to expand their qualifications by gaining multiple accreditation’s.

About the Program

Program Structure

The Community Instructor Program adopts a modulated approach to accreditation, with individuals receiving a comprehensive education that is tailored to specific national participation programs.

The Community Instructor Program is fully online and is facilitated through the PGA’s eLearning platform, The Fairway. With the development to an online approach, the Community Instructor Program is now a nationally consistent program and more accessible by regional and remote areas across Australia.

Pathway to accreditation

For new Community Instructors there will be at least two online modules you will need to complete through the Community Instructor Program, each with a specific purpose:

  1. Foundation Module or Fast Track Module
  2. Specialised Module (MyGolf Club, MyGolf Schools or Swing Fit

The Foundation Module is an online module aimed at giving new Community Instructors a broad understanding of golf before they choose their specialised module. It covers a range of different topics from ethics and equipment to instruction and safety. The Fast Track Module is an alternative to the Foundation Module and is designed for those potential Community Instructors who already have a sound understanding of golf and instructional strategies and considerations. The Fast Track Module is a comprehensive quiz designed to validate the person’s knowledge of golf. Successful candidates will proceed to their Specialised Module, whereas unsuccessful candidates will be required to complete the Foundation Module before proceeding to their Specialised Module. After successfully completing the Fast Track or Foundation Module, the final step to gaining accreditation is choosing which national participation program you wish to get accredited in. These Specialised Modules are designed to give tailored and specific information relevant to the successful delivery of the national program.

All the online modules will be completed via the PGA of Australia’s online learning platform called, ‘The Fairway’. After you enrol into any module, you will be sent a confirmation of enrolment email with directions to access The Fairway including personalised login details.

Recognition of current knowledge

The Community Instructor Program acknowledges certain demographics and professions may possess relevant qualifications, knowledge or experience that would vary the level of compulsory information required to complete a specialised module. Therefore, customised modules and processes exist to meet the demands of these demographics.

Examples include the Community Instructor Fast Track Module and the MyGolf Schools Teacher Module.

As the Community Instructor Program develops further, various customised modules may be considered for development to meet the needs of relevant demographics.
