Abstract: In terms of historical background, development organization, framework system and standard certifica-tion etc, the authors analyzed the physical education teacher professional standards of the United States, Canada and Ireland. In terms of historical background, the standards were mainly affected by overall national education changes, showing the typical characteristics of “exogenous development”; in terms of standard development organization, based on “professionals doing professional things”, all the 3 countries have a “professional community” for standard development and maintaining a sustainable working mode; in terms of standard framework system, there are differ-ences in the presentation form, vertical structure and horizontal structure of the standards; in terms of standard certi-fication, the United States and Canada have systematic certification procedures, while Ireland mainly depends on physical education teacher educators carrying out autonomous application. Inspirations to China are as follows: closely follow the trend of education reform and the realistic needs of physical education teacher development; es-tablish a “government and professional community” combined standard construction organization; build a physical education teacher professional standard framework system with local features; fully exert professional standard cer-tification’s role in improving the quality of talent cultivation.
