Complimentary   PGA   Online   Education

There are 11 online video seminars worth 1 or 2 MSR credits in the PGA Required category upon successful completion (70%) of the assessment at the end of each seminar session.  Each online seminar may only be taken once and there is just one assessment retake opportunity allowed. The topics include but are not limited to: Player Development, PerformanceTrak, CPP2.0, Connecting with Her, Staff Sales & Service Training, Knowing Your Customer and more. These online courses are being offered in order to supplement the in-person opportunities available through Section meetings, Section education and Player Development/Golf 2.0 programming.
Begin taking the courses HERE.

Team  Golf

Beginning in 2014 and moving forward, Team Golf coaches (and up to one assistant coach) will be able to earn PGA Required MSR credits based on participation in the program. 
The Team Golf schedule has been broken into three seasons: spring, summer and fall.
Spring Season: January 1 - April 30
Summer Season: May 1 - August 31
Fall Season: September 1 - December 31
Coaches and one assistant coach will each receive 3 PGA Required MSR credits for each season your team participates. A maximum of 9 credits can be earned through Team Golf in a calendar year. If you have any questions about Team Golf and the MSR credits given, please contact Scott Archer at sarcher@ntpga.com.

*Credits that are earned at PGA of America, Section or Chapter events and seminars will be applied to the 36 "PGA Required" credits needed for this MSR Cycle. Credits earned at other non-PGA events or seminars (even if they were education or meeting-based) will be applied to the "Overall Required" credits needed for this MSR Cycle. To further understand the new credit requirements and distribution, please login to your PGALinks account and read HERE.
Should you have any questions about MSR opportunities or the credit distribution, please contact Janet Barnett, Manager of Member Relations, at the Section office.
