PGA of Australia E Learning: The Fairway

 

The PGA of Australia have given us access to their ACE (Accreditation and Continuing Education) programme. They divide their programme (and member classifications) into 4 streams: Coaching, Small Business, Game Development and Management.

We have listed, for your convenience, the modules that are available in each of these categories.

When converting Ace Credits to CPD points a good rule of thumb (but this needs to be confirmed by PGA SA education department) is that 1 Ace Credit is 20 CPD points.

You can see the Ace page by clicking on this link and using the details that were e mailed to you to log in.

In order to be given access to the material you need to pay Aus$ 50 which will be offset against the education that you choose.
