Founded in 1982, the U.S. National Tennis Academy is an association of tennis teaching professionals and coaches.
The USNTA produces and administers a distance learning (home study) training and certification program for tennis instructors and coaches.
Persons who successfully complete the program are designated as “Certified Professional Tennis Instructors.”
Since certification is voluntary, it represents not only compliance with established standards, but also a special personal commitment to quality and professionalism.
Certification also enhances your chances of obtaining a teaching job.
