The tennis industry is primed for growth, and becoming a certified teaching professional is one way to help build your career. The two organizations that certify individuals, the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) and the Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) are fully accredited by the USTA.

What are the benefits of becoming a certified coach?

  • Advanced certification with a defined career pathway
  • Workshops that focus on experiential learning for optimal growth
  • Robust offering of online courses for easily accessible training
  • Job placement services to help jump-start your career
  • Apprenticeship programs to earn money while furthering your education
  • Support and facilitate a safer tennis environment by becoming Safe Play approved, at no cost  
  • Continuing education to enhance skills and create new opportunities


As a USTA accredited organization, the USPTA is charged with administering the tennis-teaching certification program outlined by the USTA and its Accreditation Review Board.


As a USTA accredited organization, PTR is working to elevate the resources available to coaches pursuing certification, while enhancing the growth and success of your coaching career.
