There are two ways in which you can qualify as a PGA member. One is to do the PGA's academic programme as a student at a tertiary institution;the other is to join the PGA as an apprentice member.
In the former the student remains an amateur and has the advantage of studying full time and playing in amateur tournaments. Students have to do some of their practical time while they are studying and make up the rest with the PGA as apprentices.
Apprentices on the other hand do their studies through the PGA while serving a 3 year apprenticeship. They have to be a 5 handicap or better, have matric and be employed by a fully qualified PGA member, and then join the PGA and give up their amateur statusOn-site training is the backbone of training received by young professionalsand the academic component is done via distance learning. Daily contact in a personal relationship with a professional often with many years' experience provides an ideal atmosphere for learning.
Both students and apprentices have to show their practical competency by passing a Custom Fitting Practical and Teaching Practical exams.
The apprentice also has to prove his Playing Ability by achieving a set standard of playing. The apprenticeship is not only a time of academic and practical application; it is also a time for the young pro to see how far he can take his game.
