PGA Training Academy
# Registered

Course Category: Golf Operations
Credit Value: 2
Cost: Cost varies by association
Delivery Method: In-person seminar conducted by the Provincial Golf Associations

Level 2 (provincial certification) seminars will be conducted by provincial golf associations (PA), and the curriculum will begin to look at the more important playing Rules in detail.

Some of the complexities that are found in the Rules of Golf book or the Official Guide on the Rules of Golf are introduced along while also implementing on-course demonstrations. Level 2 (Provincial) will be designed for individuals with involvement in tournament administration, or a desire to have such involvement.

*The 2019 Level 2 certification is equivalent to the 2018 Level 3 certification, therefore, we will be accepting both the Level 3 certificates (from 2018 - earlier) and Level 2 certificates (from 2019 onward).

Must be certified in Level 1 (online)


Requirements to be Provincially  Certified
  • Attend and achieve a minimum of 80% on the Level 2 exam, administered by the PA.
  • Complete 50 hours of on-course experience as a Referee.
  • Complete an additional 10 hours accompanying a Level 3 certified Referee at a championship

For National accompanying opportunities in your area, please see the Golf Canada Competitions schedule or contact your Provincial Association for more information.
