Practical Course Information

Once students successfully pass a Level 1 or Level 2 Instructor Certification Online Course, they will be required to register for a Practical Course to complete their certification.

Students who pass the Level 1 Instructor Certification online course will register for a Level 1 Instructor Certification Practical Course.

Students who pass the Level 2 Instructor Certification online course will register for a Level 2 Instructor Certification Practical Course.

USA Archery certified Instructor Trainers sanction and host Practical Courses. Students can visit the USA Archery Course Locator to locate and register for a local practical course. Please watch this short video to learn how to register for a practical course that has online registration through the USA Archery Membership Services platform.

Sanctioning a Practical Course

USA Archery Instructor Trainers will sanction all practical courses through the USA Archery Membership Services Platform. A current Instructor Trainer certification is required to sanction Level 1 and Level 2 Practical Courses. Instructor Trainers should sanction Practical Courses at least one week prior to the start date of the Practical Course so students have enough time to register for the course)

If you will collect registration fees directly from the USA Archery Membership Services Platform, you must either sanction the course from a Club Account if you are a club director, or from a Management Account if you are not a club director or wish to keep your course registration fees separate.

You may watch a short video to learn how to Sanction a Practical Course and pass students once they have completed the course so their certification will be automatically generated.
