 How to Complete this Course:


 The Mastering Golf Psychology course from the IGPA consists of 6 modules. Each module contains an overview, video lectures, readings, assignments, and a quiz. To complete each module:


  1) Review the videos, and readings.


  2) Complete the assignments, and quizzes.




 This course follows an open timeline format. This means that you are free to work on any component of the course. Assignments are meant to help you reflect on your own personal strengths and to improve on your weaknesses. Participation in assignments is required to complete this course but these activities will not be graded.




 At the end of each module you will have 20 multiple-choice and True/False questions that comprise each quiz. These quizzes are based upon the videos and readings. You will have unlimited opportunities to achieve a passing grade of 70%. This means that if you don’t do as well as you would like the first time, you can review the information again to work toward a higher score.




 Once you complete all six modules in this course, a certificate will open in the Certificate Module. You will be able to download, complete, and print the certificate to keep. This certificate will state that you completed the Mastering Golf Psychology On-line training from the International Golf Psychology Association (IGPA) and you are certified by this association as a mental game expert.
