It also qualifies students to teach the Level 1 Archery Instructor Certification Course. 

Graduates of the Level 2 Archery Instructor Certification Course are well prepared to serve as the lead instructor for long-term archery programs such as Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD), Adult Archery Program and Collegiate Archery Program clubs, as well as the Explore Archery Program.

They will attain the necessary tools to maintain a high level of safety both on and off the archery range, and ensure that minimum standards for archery instruction are consistently taught to provide for the safety and enjoyment of the participants, instructors and spectators.
