Become a Member of the PGA

There are two pathways that lead to PGA membership - the PGA PGM Apprentice Program, and the PGA Golf Management University Program.

While the apprentice and university programs differ in significant ways, both pathways require completion of the same PGA PGM curriculum, work experience, PGA Playing Ability Test, and employment or internship requirements.

The courses cover content and activities every PGA Professional should know and be able to demonstrate when they enter the profession as a PGA member.
