Can I deduct my PGA classes as I am an apprentice for a Golf Professional?

To deduct the PGA classes, they would need to maintain or improve your job skills. If you are NOT an employee apprentice and are filing a Schedule C to report your income (you keep track of your own income or you receive a 1099 Misc), then yes you can deduct them. 

 If you are an employee, employee work-related expenses are no longer deductible.
