The ASQ Level 1 Certificate in Coaching Golf will provide individuals with the knowledge and competence to assist more qualified coaches, delivering aspects of golf coaching sessions, normally under direct supervision. This qualification is available to individuals with an interest in golf coaching, who wish to work alongside other qualified coaches (for example a golf Professional) to provide basic technical coaching to beginner golfers.
N.B. Registration closes 5 weeks prior to the course start date.

PGA – ASQ Level 2 Coaching Certificate
The ASQ Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Golf will provide individuals with the knowledge and competence to lead the planning and delivery of coaching sessions to improving golfers. This qualification is available to individuals with an interest in golf coaching, (who meet the course entry requirements listed below), who wish to further develop their coaching knowledge and skills in the golfing arena.
NB. The PGA is currently clarifying the demand for Level 2 coaches with the governing bodies of golf. This work requires the development of detailed workforce plans that are taking time to complete effectively. Once this work is complete the PGA will be able to plan and deliver a full programme of Level 2 courses that meet the needs of the game in the UK. We envisage running the ASQ Level 2 Coaching Certificate from 2016 in Wales with information available in due course.
