For a small fee and a few hours of your time, you can become a certified archery instructor. Why make those investments? Simple:
Instructor certification boosts your marketing value, provides your staff valuable skills and knowledge, and gives your store access to Explore Archery and Junior Olympic Archery Development programs that attract and engage new archers.
If those reasons aren’t enough, read “5 Reasons to Become a Certified Archery Instructor,” by Jennifer Mazur on ArcheryTrade.org.
