There are already multiple levels of certification which no one other than industry peers seem to care about. They are good for getting awards. Being a USPTA Master Professional or whatever does not attract students or fetch more money - that was already happening regardless. So with so many options of higher certification available, why make the minimum one more onerous?Certification, I think is not all bad. From customers point of view it may be valuable information on what to expect from the level of coaching you get.
Aknowledgement would in the best case scenario cut off lot of trial and error.
I’d rather have USTA (in comparision to USGA) than professional players or teachers association (PGA) to aknowledge the coaches. Sports assiciation, yet not probably most efficient is something more than a labor unioin.
