The EFFA Single Hand Master Instructor certificate identifies the holder as the highest qualified instructor - namely as a Master. He therefore fulfills the requirements demanded in the Master Test and is allowed to act as a representative of the EFFA Flycasting Program. (more....).

The EFFA Double Hand Instructor Certification Program consists of two parts. You can either try to become an EFFA Double Hand Instructor in Longline Technique ("Spey") or an EFFA Double Hand Instructor in Underhand Technique (UH). (more....).
