"Become Rotary Swing Tour Certified and teach the only scientifically validated swing method on the planet today!"
Rotary Swing Tour (RST) Certification is reserved for the very brightest and knowledgable instructors in the world. When students take lessons from RST Certified golf instructors, they are guaranteed to be working with the most extensively trained and tested golf instructors anywhere.
To become RST Certified is not easy. The tests are very hard and require a deep understanding of many disciplines typical golf instructor training neglects.
It is required that all potential candidates progress through each level, starting with the Level 1 certification. Once Level 1 is passed, you will have attained knowledge and understanding about the golf swing that will far surpass anything available to anyone else in the golf instruction industry and will be well on your way to becoming one of the select few "Master Rotary Swing Instructors."

Below you will find a high-level summary of each certification level; details and sign-up information can be accessed by clicking on the title of the level.
The first certification level is primarily focused on increasing the instructor's knowledge base so he or she can teach the fundamentals of the safest, most efficient swing based on current research while maximizing students' practice time and effecting real change. The information that must be learned just to pass Level 1 requires on average 100 hours of study on swing mechanics, physics, anatomy, biomechanics, physiology and more.
Level 2 Certification
Level 2 Certification builds upon the foundation of Level 1 while adding significantly more detail of the mechanics and biomechanics of the swing. A strong base knowledge from Level 1 is required in order to truly understand many of the complex topics covered in Level 2. Significant time is devoted to the cause and effect relationships of different movements, setup issues and tendencies in the golf swing that the instructor will face on the lesson tee. To become Level 2 certified, not only will you have to fully understand the mechanics of the golf swing, but you'll have to demonstrate it in person with an RST Trainer. You will be required to give a 2 hour golf lesson to a participant while the RST Trainer observes. A pass/fail grade is given for this part of the exam. Similar to Level 1, you will also be required to pass an extensive online exam.
Becoming a Master RST Instructor is the pinnacle of golf instruction. Not only will you fully understand the biological processes that occur during the learning process, you will have a masterful understanding of anatomy, biomechanics, injury causation, cause and effect of ball flight and swing mechanics and have to demonstrate it working with an RST Trainer over 3 days in person. An extensive online exam requiring you to study video and screen captures of different golf swings will thoroughly test your understanding of the golf swing and ensure you can work with all golfers from beginners to the elite.
