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.

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.
