Frequently Asked Questions About The IMGCA Certified Golf Psychology Coach Program
QUESTION 1: When I complete the specialty golf or tennis certification, does that automatically make me a Level I graduate also?
ANSWER: No, the specialty golf or tennis certifications do not automatically make you a Level I graduate. Those are separate certifications. Many people find value in doing both certifications.
QUESTION 2: Can I apply the payment and hours from the specialty golf or tennis certification to another IMGCA Level?
ANSWER: Yes. You can apply those hours and fees paid to any IMGCA Level II certification or higher, as long as you qualify to begin that particular certification. Contact us for details. The tennis and golf special certification hours and fees cannot be applied to Level I certification.
QUESTION 3: Can I apply the payment and hours from any IMGCA Level I through IV certification to the golf or tennis certifications?
ANSWER: No, the specialty golf or tennis certifications are on their own separate track. To start golf or tennis specialty training you would need to pay the appropriate, separate fee.
QUESTION 4: Is the content in the specialty golf or tennis certifications the same as what is covered in Level I or Level II certifications?
ANSWER: Some of the content from Level I is contained in these specialty certifications. The rest is highly focused material on either golf or tennis.
QUESTION 5: How specifically is the content in the golf or tennis certifications different from, or the same as Level I?
ANSWER: Level I covers the basics of how to teach and coach the mental game, broadly applied to all sports. In the golf or tennis certifications, you will learn highly specialized tools and methods of how to specifically coach the mental game in these two sports.
QUESTION 6: What will I be missing from level I certification if I take the golf or tennis certification?
ANSWER: Since Level I covers the basics of coaching the mental game, you would get broader content there than in the golf or tennis specializations. It's really a trade-off, since in Level I, those students may get very little in golf or tennis specifics. If you are a golf pro, golf coach, or tennis pro or tennis coach, these specialized certifications are the best avenue for you.
QUESTION 7: Can I use the content and tools from the golf or tennis certifications with non-golfers and non-tennis players?
ANSWER: Yes, all of the content and tools you learn in the golf or tennis certifications can be adapted to other sports.
QUESTION 8: What is better to choose, one of the specialty golf or tennis certifications, or Level I certification?
ANSWER: If you think you will be having many tennis players or golfers as clients these specialty certifications are what will help them most and impress them the most. These specialty certifications will also give you specific tools that will help people in these sports in particular. If you are a tennis pro or a golf pro, these specialty certifications make even more sense, since these give you a marketing edge as you will be seen as an expert in the psychology of these sports.
