Training Process

AimPoint Certification is a training process which ensures that instructors are fully qualified to teach AimPoint concepts and methods. It consists of the application process and a one full day training period which can be conducted in Orlando with Mark Sweeney, in England with Jamie Donaldson, or in select locations in Asia including Shanghai and Kuala Lumpur.

1. Application

The application will be reviewed and initial approval to begin the training process will be granted or denied within 30 business days. Applicants who hold competing green-reading certifications will not be accepted. Upon acceptance, the license agreement must be signed prior to scheduling your training.

2. Training

The training process consists of about 6 hours of attending a training school which will be scheduled once per month in Orlando, Florida. During Express training the applicant will learn the following concepts and methods:

  • Teaching Methodology
  • AimPoint Express Concepts and Techniques
  • Stimp Adjustments
  • Double Breaks
  • Adjustment for downhill putts and big slopes
  • Putt Geometry

After training, the candidate will become an AimPoint Level 1 Certified Instructor who is qualified to teach AimPoint Green Reading and may use the AimPoint Certified logo.

Maintaining License

In order to maintain your license, each year you will be expected to teach and register a minimum of 25 students and attend continuing education.

Failure to do so may result in your license becoming inactive or revoked. The AimPoint methods and associated materials are trademarked and patented assets owned by AimPoint Technologies with specific limitations on their use. Nothing in the license agreement grants ownership of any kind to the licensed instructor.


The AimPoint Level 1 License permits you to teach AimPoint at your home facility only.
