USPTA Launches Online Certification Review Course
February 18, 2008
The United States Professional Tennis Association is very excited to announce that it is making it easier for tennis professionals to earn a USPTA certification by providing the Certification Review Course online. In addition, applicants will be able to take the written and grip portions of the exam online as well.
This is a great advantage for the busy tennis-teaching professional who may not have the time to attend a six-hour review course at a particular testing location. Tennis-teaching professionals can now review all the critical material for the certification exam from the comfort of their own home or office via their computers. Not only that, but videos give applicants a taste of what to expect during the on-court part of the exam. The online review will combine audio, visual and text formats, as well as short quizzes at the end of each section to optimize the learning and review experience.
The 100-question written exam and grip exam will be accessible once applicants have completed the on-court portion and the stroke-analysis exam. Applicants will be tested against a time limit.
The online CRC will completely replace the six-hour classroom review session after May 18, except for exams held at the Regional Testing Centers, USPTA World Conference and divisional conventions. Previously the classroom review went over the material presented in the 522-page “The Complete Guide to USPTA Membership” the day prior to the exam at each testing location.
Through the launch of the online Certification Review Course, the USPTA shows its dedication and commitment to continue to marry its roles as the leader in tennis education and certification and as one of the most technologically advanced companies in the tennis industry, in order to give its members every opportunity and benefit to further their tennis teaching and tennis business education and skills. It’s just one more technology driven education and resource available for its members.
