Quebec City, Quebec | March 11, 2011—Mathieu Paradis became the ninth instructor to earn Level 1 RST Golf Certification on February 25, 2011. Paradis, who provides lessons in both English and French, is the first person in Canada to complete the initial phase of RotarySwing.com’s golf instructor training program, adding to his already impressive teaching background.
In addition to his Level 1 RST Certification, Paradis is a Vision 54 coach, a professional golf teacher at La Tempete golf club, the University Laval men’s and women’s golf team assistant coach, and the Ste-Foy college golf team head coach.
“For my coaching philosophy, I teach a lot on the mental side of the game,” said Paradis. He stresses that it often takes more than just having an efficient swing. According to Paradis, struggles can still occur “if you don’t have any trust in yourself and a good commitment on your shot.”
Paradis joins two other instructors internationally and six more in the United States who have been certified in the twelve months since the program’s inception. The speed at which Rotary Swing Golf Certification is spreading across the globe is not surprising to the company’s founder, Chuck Quinton.
“The bulk of our business originates from our strong web presence at RotarySwing.com, which doesn’t limit us to any geographic region,” said Quinton. ”Combine that with an online golf certification process for our level one training that meets instructors’ needs for affordability and convenience, and I expect to see RST Certified Instructors everywhere golf is played.”
Quinton indicated that the golf instructor training program has received significant interest since it launched in February 2010 and is excited about the opportunities ahead for his business as well as for the RST Certified Instructors.
“The RST golf instructor certification promises to be a great vehicle for growth, not just for RotarySwing.com, but also for instructors teaching our methods,” said Quinton. “The mutually beneficial nature of our certification program promises to drive its success.”
In addition to providing objective, scientific facts about golf instruction and the swing to improve golf coaching techniques, Rotary Swing Golf offers Certified Instructors promotional benefits to boost their revenues. These golf instructors realize significant visibility through listings on the heavily trafficked RotarySwing.com, inclusion in weekly email newsletters to thousands of golfers, and postings on social media like Facebook and RotarySwing.com’s Golf Forums and Golf Instruction Blog.
“Not many golf instructors have websites that pull in thousands of visitors each day,” Quinton said. “We can help them get their names out to potential students without spending a boatload on web design, search engine optimization, and online advertising.”
Ultimately, though, an instructor’s success comes down to the quality of golf instruction provided, and Quinton went to great lengths to ensure only the most knowledgeable golf instructors will earn certification.
According to the RST Golf Instructor Certification Overview page on RotarySwing.com, “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.” The website indicates that these fields represent “many disciplines typical golf instructor training neglects.”
