The PGA strives to provide educational opportunities that support our industry and develop individuals who have a passion for a career in golf, both on and off the green.


In June, the PGA of Australia is running a series of Careers Information Nights for anyone interested in applying for one of the PGA's training and education programs, including the Trainee Program and those offered by both the PGA International Golf Institute and the PGA Centre for Learning and Performance.

PGA National Training and Education Manager, Geoff Stewart said the Career Information Nights would include guidance and information on entry criteria for each program, program cost, completion requirements and expected outcomes.

"For individuals seeking a career as a PGA Professional working as a Club Professional, Director of Golf or Golf Coach, the information night will outline the entry and completion requirements of the PGA's world renowned Trainee Program.  In addition, the evening will outline the benefits of PGA Membership and the accreditations, qualifications and opportunities available to Trainee Program graduates."

"For those interested in a career in the business of golf as a golf operations or golf club manager, the information presented will also encapsulate the courses offered by the PGA International Golf Institute (IGI), including the Diploma of Golf Management and the Advanced Diploma of Management," he said.

"Also included in the night will be the PGA Performance Program – a 1-year game improvement program offered by the PGA Centre for Learning and Performance.  The Performance Program also incorporates nationally accredited training via the completion of a Diploma of Sport Development."

The evenings will also include information on how to gain a Tour Card on the PGA Tour of Australasia or articulate into higher education studies from the PGA programs on offer. Programs covered include:
