Clubmakers have two main choices to be certified properly:
1. P.C.S. - Professional Clubmakers Society
2. G.C.A. - Golf Clubmakers Association
The two- part exam, a rigorous written exam consisting of 350 questions followed by a practical skills exam, focuses on proper assembly techniques of 5 different selected clubs to be build to specific specification as per instructions and marked on both exams with a passing mark of 85 percent.
It affords exceptional skilled clubmakers the opportunity to gain recognition of excellence as a clubmaker. Prior to this, the industry offered no such certification opportunities to skilled craftsmen.
Professional Clubmakers Certification program added two new "Class A" certification levels in 1998.
The optional certifications levels of "Class A" Club Fitter and " Class A" Club Repairer were established to provide clubmakers an opportunity to specialize in fitting and repair if they choose too.
All Exams consist of a thorough written exam and a practical exam focusing on their respective topics.
