Master Instructors – Level 4 ACS Certification
Professional instructor working with players from beginner to professional for over 10 years…
I trained for nearly 15 years at CueSport Billiard Academy under my mentor Fredric “The Teacher” Fechter, who was elected by the BCA as 1 of 5 original Master instructors asked to lead the official BCA Instructor program in 1994. With the BCA, the academy was also nominated as the 1st BCA Master Academy. Fredric resigned in 2002 from that position with the BCA. The BCA Instructor program is now known as the PBIA or Professional Billiard Instructors Association. He later accepted the honorary position of ACS Level 4 Master Instructor in 2006.
On November 25th of 2011, a tragic fire destroyed CueSport College, in which he had built from the ground up since 1963. Fredric joyfully retired in 2011 and helped me to continue on his teachings by resurrecting the CueSport Billiard Academy.
Fredric Fechter – (Retired in 2011)
“Billiards is a path of passion that cares the soul.”
I have spent time with other instructors around the globe and not one of them compared to the quality of instruction, attention to detail or depth of knowledge that I had witnessed Mr. Fechter employ in his lessons with so many different students of all skill abilities. He was a staple in the world of top notch professional instruction and will be missed, but I will continue to pass on his teachings to every student in addition to my own style I have developed throughout my years of experience and study of cuesports.
Eventually after working my way up the ladder all of those years, I reached the certification of Master Instructor or Level 4. As a licensed PAT examiner, I also help to certify others to become ACS instructors. The president of the ACS, John Lewis, also asked me to sit on the Instructor Committee for the ACS to help maintain the growth and stability of the instructor program, in which I have done for almost 5 years.
