More than 600 instructors around the world have passed our Level 1 Certification Course so far. The Level 1 is a free (for a limited time) online course available through our website. Watch the video seminar and take the multiple choice test to become a Swing Catalyst Level 1 Certified Instructor!
The Swing Catalyst Certification Program provides insights into how the best golfers in the world are using the ground to create power and consistency, and how the ground reaction forces affect the golf swing. There is no requirement to own a Swing Catalyst Balance Plate or a 3D Motion Plate to take this course.
The program is led by Dr. Scott Lynn, Associate Professor at California State University, Fullerton and Research Director at Swing Catalyst. The main purpose of the program is to provide a better understanding of how biomechanics can help golfers improve their swing and avoid injury. The certification program is divided into two courses, Level 1 and Level 2.
- Level 1 is an online course which focuses on basic biomechanics terminology and the difference between shifting mass and shifting pressure (CoM vs CoP). Students will also learn about the Swing Catalyst Balance Plate and how the best players in the world are shifting pressure to create more power.
- Level 2 is a one day seminar and offers students who have completed Level 1, a more in-depth look at biomechanics in golf. During the seminar students will also learn how the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate can help visualize the invisible forces leading to a powerful and efficient golf swing.
