Below is the PBIA (or BCA) instructor code of conduct. I don't believe it's ever been posted here. If you catch a PBIA instructor bad-mouthing a fellow instructor, they are in violation of the code. Please report them to the BCA. --- And the person being bad-mouthed probably wouldn't mind a heads-up as well.
PBIA Instructor Code of Conduct
This is the standard by which all PBIA instructors provide services to students and commit to continuous improvement.
1. My primary obligation is to help my students improve their playing skills and gain a greater understanding of the game.
2. My instruction techniques will incorporate effective, positive teaching techniques.
3. I will maintain high professional standards in all aspects of instruction.
4. To ensure that instructional behavior is not misunderstood, situations that require some physical guidance properly position a student’s body will be preceded by a full explanation and a request for permission.
