The Professional Gamer Training Academy or PGTA announced that it launched its website on August 22d, offering professional training by video gamers to gamers.
PGTA has been started by Kathy Zablotzky or more popularly known as “Snuggles“. She became a professional gamer when in 2007 she won the Women’s Tournament and UK Championship for the Championship Gaming Series Dead or Alive 4 tournament. And her career as a professional gamer soared high.
With PGTA, she is offering a range of structured lessons in a range of games, by trained instructors. PGTA is the only gamer training company providing lessons in a range of games that offers you all this:
- Teaches it’s instructors before allowing them to teach you
- Charges a fixed price for lessons rather than letting each instructor charge what they like
- Has structured lessons from introductory level through to advanced in a range of games/platforms
- Only puts a lesson on the site when it has been thoroughly tested and approved
- Describes the lesson content on the site so that you know what you’re going to learn
Here are some FAQs from their website:
- Why would I want training?
- People go for training in a range of leisure pursuits, whether they are sports like tennis, horse riding, or gold, or hobbies like dancing, crocheting, or collecting antiques. If gamers want to improve they can do it by spending time practicing, trying to get tips from people better than they are, searching the internet for videos, or having one to one coaching from PGTA.
- Can I get training for my team/clan?
- Yes. For team games we have done our best to make sure that the prices are very sensible and you have the option of going online with an instructor, or going online with another team where each team has an instructor.
- Surely the only way to get better is to practice. Why would I bother to have a lesson?
- Anyone who has ever played a game knows that there is no substitute for practice, but you need to know what you should be practicing to get the most benefit from all those hours.
Having a lesson that teaches you things you didn’t know or were not sure about will help you to get the most from your practice sessions.
And if you think you have the skill to be an instructor, you can also apply to be one to PGTA. They are an equal opportunity company, anyone can apply as long as they are at least 16 years of age.
