Benefits of doing The International Coaching course at AKFDC:

The course in India will allow coaches who move to ENGLAND (only within FA jurisdiction), to be considered as competent at the Technical requirements of a Level 1 coach.

They can use it to support appropriate application to enrol on FA courses.

Please note that as we develop the Intermediate and Licence Levels the same process will apply with regard to FA courses BUT they will not be allowed to be used in any way as evidence towards UEFA accredited awards and so will only have validity in England.

The Coaching Pathway

What sort of coach do you want to be?

With FA Learning providing 47 different football qualifications, it can at first appear a bit confusing where to start

There is the standard route of football coaching qualifications which progresses from Level One, Two and Three, building into the higher level UEFA A Licence and UEFA Pro Licence. The UEFA Pro Licence is the highest coaching qualification in the game, mandatory for all Premier League managers.

FA Learning’s qualifications are build on each other. For example, you couldn’t take your Level 3 before you take your Level 2!
