To be eligible for the certification program, you must possess a nationally recognized level of competence in the sport, or in fitness or training more generally, such as certification from organizations like (in the United States) the PTR, EASI, CSCS, USPTA, ACE, ATC, PTE, IFPA, etc. Similar certification programs from associations and organizations in other countries are also acceptable. Extensive teaching, coaching and training experience may be substituted in some instances, and Pat will evaluate those requests on a case-by-case basis. If you have questions about your eligibility, please contact us at contact us.

Certification Fees

The standard fee for certification is $595.00. This includes a non-refundable deposit of $100 required at the time of registration. This fee covers all expenses associated with your certification, including books, DVDs, manuals, equipment, use of the Fitness Center and courts during instruction and testing.

Certification Clinic

The Etcheberry Certification Program consists of a two-day, hands-on Certification Clinic that includes two morning sessions of classroom presentations and two afternoons of in-gym and on-court workout sessions. Written and performance tests are administered to candidates, who are presented with certificates upon successful completion.

Clinics are offered each year at the Etcheberry Experience Sports Performance Center and following the PTR International symposium at Hilton Head Island. Other clinics may be offered at regional locations in the United States, Canada and other countries around the world. Enrollment will be limited so that Pat can have quality time with every candidate.

Clinic attendees are responsible for their own travel and accommodations expenses, as well as any leisure time activities they choose to arrange during their stay. The Mission Inn Resort offers special reduced rates on accommodations for clients of Etcheberry Experience. Please check out other accommodations in Howey-In-The-Hills or attractions in the Orlando area.
