The USPTA is committed to quality teaching of all players and understands the need to fill the void in the wheelchair certification area. This program opens up new teaching opportunities for professionals and encourages the growth of wheelchair tennis. The wheelchair certification allows teaching professionals to work with wheelchair players and instruct other teachers on this sport.

Currently wheelchair certification is open to USPTA Certified Professionals and Recreational Coaches with memberships in good standing. The certification consists of a day and a half of on-court and classroom education culminating in a 26-question written exam.
