The test are divided into 3 parts: Written, Pedagogical and Shot Demostration. The written test consists of 50 questions totaling 100 points. The pedagogical test must teach a golf lesson to a group of students. In the shot demostration test you must demonstrate your ability to execute the different strokes. . All the subjects and content of the tests are treated in the course of Level 1 of the Registro Profesional de Golf – RPG (Registry of Golf Professionals). In addition, a continuous evaluation will be carried out during the days of the course to each of the participants, which will determine the final result.

According to the results of the exams and the continuous assessment of the student, three levels of degree are established:

– NATIONAL INSTRUCTOR: You must obtain between 86% and 100% in the 3 parts of the exam.
– INSTRUCTOR: You must obtain between 76% and 85% in the 3 parts.
– ASSOCIATED INSTRUCTOR: You must obtain between 65% and 75% in the 3 parts.
– AFFILIATED: When you get less than 65% in the 3 parts.

The final grade will be determined by the lowest score in the 3 parts of the exam. For example, if you get National Instructor in play, National Instructor in teaching and Associate Instructor in writing, your final degree will be Associate Instructor. For 1 year you can retake the exam in the area where you need to get a higher score. To be able to return to the exams without cost, you must be registered in the RPG Club.
