The PBIA's mission is to provide quality billiard instruction to individuals at all levels of proficiency, as well as offer training and certification programs for individuals wishing to become qualified billiard instructors.
BCA Instructor
PBIA Instructors,

In our recent PBIA newsletter we asked all instructors to complete a survey, as well as a volunteer background check.  

Your participation in the survey and background check will help us be able to continue to move this program in the right direction.  Thank you to all those who have already completed the PBIA survey and background check!
PBIA Background Verification Program Launched 
More than 25 PBIA Instructors have already been verified! 

Do you work with kids?  Do you give lessons from your home?  Do you go to other people's home to provide instruction?  Do you want prospective students to know that you are background check verified? Do you want your name to be listed at the top of instructor searches in your state?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above we highly recommend you participate in our new background check program offered by Verified Volunteers. 

Recently, you received a personal email from Verified Volunteers on how to participate in the screening program. 

Registration for the background check is easy to complete. During your registration for the screen, you will have the option of paying for all, part or none of the fee for the background check.  The Billiard Congress of America will cover all fees not paid by the instructor. 

Any instructor involved with the Billiard Education Foundation, BEF Junior Nationals, Atlantic Challenge Cup or WPA Junior World Championships will be required to pass the screening process.

Please email to receive a link to the background check registration form if you need the information provided again.
