As part of our strategic plan, IPTPA announces the expansion of our curriculum to include 3 levels of certification.
Level I Certification
“Teach the Teacher Workshop”. A two day eight-hour program based on the new IPTPA Handbook. Participants who complete the workshop to IPTPA standards will be awarded an IPTPA Level I Certificate of Completion and given the designation Certified Pickleball Instructor (CPI). All certified pickleball instructors are certified to introduce pickleball to new players and teach at the beginner skill level. They are also eligible to receive IPTPA’s liability insurance.
Level II Certification
Our current certification program will fall under IPTPA Level II Certification. IPTPA’s current program certifies pickleball teaching professionals to work with beginners through intermediate players.
Level III Certification
Coming in 2018 will be a new curriculum and certification program called IPTPA Level III Certification. Graduates of this program will be given the designation Certified Elite Pickleball Teaching Professionals (CEPTP). The CEPTP designation will certify teaching professionals to coach beginner through pro level players. An additional handbook will be developed to emphasize the components of this new curriculum.
