Step 5: Pass the PTR Certification Test
To become PTR Certified you must pass all PTR Certification Tests. The highest certification rating is Professional, followed by Instructor, then Associate Instructor. Your overall certification rating is the lowest of your test scores.
For example, if you score Professional on four tests and Instructor on one, your overall rating will be Instructor.
You may retest on any or all of the tests 60 days after your most recent testing date. Retesting fees will apply. You are allowed to keep all of the scores that you are satisfied with while retesting only those that you wish to improve. Should you score lower on a retest, then your original score is kept.
The PTR Certification process combines a basic, fundamental teaching style with a standardized test. Testers provide grades and PTR reviews the results and determines final ratings to help ensure that each member is treated equally and fairly.
Once you have passed all tests, you become a certified member in the world’s largest organization of tennis teachers and coaches.
