Hi everyone. From the response the topic about FFA coaching badges received it has become obvious that there is a lack of information and/or the ability to attain such information about coaching courses and badges. A lot of the comments were in response to the prices of the FFA courses and the general curiosity about doing badges in other local, interstate and/or international locations.

My hope for this thread is that we can pile together all and any information we know or we find about these courses, just to make a general resource for anybody to come and have a look at. If you are curious about anything that is not on this page, please request it as I'd be more than happy to find out for you.

All said and done - I hope this can help whoever is looking for the help and information. Good luck on your coaching journey!


***

The list is beginning to become quite long, which is great. It has the drawback of making things a little more difficult to find though. If you are curious about the situation in a specific country's federation, I suggest searching this page for the abbreviation of the country's federation name. So for instance, if you want to quickly find out about courses that are held in Sweden, you should search for SvFF.

***

As many of the sites and information listed below will be in a language other than English, I recommend using either Google Translate to translate any of the information you are looking for, or to make life easier, download Google Chrome Browser to help you out as it has a built in translator for most of the world's major languages.

I realise that most of the people that read this either only speak English, or speak English as their native language. To make it easier to find federations that offer courses in English on this page, simply search this page for (En), brackets included. Each federation that offers courses in English will have this mark next to it.

UEFA titled badges and courses are run by individual member federations and associations, and as such there is little to no information on UEFA's official website about coaching pathways.


England/The FA (En)
General information

Official Website
FA Coaching Pathways - Analogous to the FFA pathway documents. This document simply provides information about starting points, finishing points and additional coaching courses that can be undertaken ranging from introductory youth modules to the UEFA Pro licence, as well as separate courses on specific positional play, disabled footballing and futsal.

FA Coaching Pathways - A slightly more in depth overview between the relationships of the different pathway choices and how they interact.

Specific Course Information

FA Online Courses - Yes, you read it right. The English FA provides online courses that are both informative and more importantly, cheap. There are even a few that are free. There are specific football related courses like Laws of the Game, but also general courses that don't revolve around football as a whole, such as Introduction to Equality and Diversity. Some of these courses are more serious than others and require upwards of 20 hours of study, but with the amount of information on offer and a certificate from the FA that is received upon completion, I feel it's a decent investment.

These online courses are either done directly through the FA website, which you'll need to create an account for, or they are done directly through local association websites, which you will need to sign up for a free account to get access. Whether you do it through the FA site or the local FA site doesn't matter and is determined by what course you intend to do.

FA National Courses List - Location and price information for courses including the UEFA A, B, Pro Diploma courses and specialist courses like Psychology, First Aid and Fitness training courses.

FA Local County Courses - This page is down at the moment. When it is up it contains location and price information about grassroots and community football courses.

Northern Ireland/IFA (En)
General information


Dirk has let us know that he's heard that the professional Irish courses and badges might be marked a little easier than else where. Check them out.

Many of the Northern Irish courses and badge pages don't contain too much information, simply price, location and payment methods. The names are fairly self explanatory and if you're not sure, compare and contrast them to the closest UEFA badge.

Norway/NFF
General information

As the NFF site and information is in Norwegian, I recommend referring to my tips at the bottom of my first post. Norway is fairly accommodating to English speakers so it may be worth your time to get in contact with the federation if you would like to train for any courses or badges there.

Official Website
Club Management Courses - Courses aimed at developing club management skills. From football philosophy to how to run a canteen.

Amateur Courses and Badges

Scotland/SFA (En)
General information

The Scottish FA provides a great amount of information and courses. Check out any one of the below links to get an idea. They do get a little pricey on the upper tiers.

Sweden/SvFF
General information

As the SvFF site and information is in Swedish, I recommend referring to my tips at the bottom of my first post. Sweden, just as Norway is, is fairly accommodating to English speakers so it may be worth your time to get in contact with the federation if you would like to train for any courses or badges there.

Sweden has some slightly different options open to aspiring coaches and managers than other countries - They have a multitude of university degrees on football in addition to the regular football courses and badges that are on offer. They provide excellent training and the same certificates as specific courses run by SvFF and local federations. If you find yourself to be a resident there as I did, it may well be worth your time looking into it.

Good thread topic, Draupnir.

The AFC pyramid is different from the FFA.

The C Licence courses onwards are the same, considered Advanced Courses here.


Before that in Australia is:

Community Coaching.

Grass Roots Certicficate -2 hours 30 minutes.

Junior Licence - a day

Youth Licence - a few days

Senior Licence - a few days



One usually has to complete all these courses, in this order, before one can do a FFA C Licence.

Hey Decentric - I was just having a look at the community courses and the prerequisites and.. Well, there don't seem to be any. I *know* you're right about the fact that one has to complete them in order to progress to the C license, but do you have a source so I can post it in here.

Best I can find is "It is recommended that candidates complete one or more Community Coaching Courses as ideal preparation for entering the Advanced Pathway".

No I don't, but it was stipulated in the past.

I hope you are right, because I really don't want to do any more Community Coaching courses because the KNVB course has transcended them.

I'm training FFA Community Coaching Course graduates at my club, so I know what they've covered.

Worst you can do is try! If you hold one or more, well that seems like it is the requirements.

Good luck with the C course ;)

State coaching badge is an old qualification.

Often a state TD would have a state coaching badge. This would enable him to take community football coaching courses - Grassroots Certificates, Junior, Youth and Senior Licences.

Advanced coaching courses are C , B, A and Pro Licences. A League senior coaches have to have a minimum of an A Licence.

I've read somewhere that Draupnir is doing a FFA Senior Licence soon.

Good luck and provide plenty of detail in this thread about it.:)



I'm inquiring about KNVB for next year, but can't find any info on the KNVB site. There is a US travel group going to Holland for this August.

The KNVB run a training certificate with B and A Licence content in English for about 10 days once a year.

It will be interesting to compare my 7 day KNVB Youth Training Certificate with the FFA C Licence when I do it in October.

We have a couple who occasionally post on here who are frustrated about not getting paid work.

I've also been contacted by others via PM, who are in the same boat. There are not many paid jobs in football in Australia.

Did the Senior License courses earlier this year. Wasn't that happy with it, got a little bit of advice on my communication but that's about it in terms of what I feel I got out of it. Plus I'm still waiting on the FFV to send me certificates and paper work and that's about 4 months down the track.

Would be quite interested in the AFC C license and taking part in a KNVB course, so this thread is great.

Hey krisskrash, thanks for the input. I have enrolled into both the senior certificates and license courses. They start in about 6 weeks. I am not exactly sure what to expect from them but I will post my opinions about them afterwards.

How would you describe the assessment task for the senior license? I am a little nervous about it (slightly shy!).

At the moment for this thread I am working with information from with English FA and the UEFA courses. Ironically the UEFA B residential course is cheaper and longer than the FFA C license.

these guys got converted to 'B' and having seen them in action you would have to question the coaching content of the FFA . But hey mint loads of qualified coaches and Berger cross etc must be doing a good job then.


We have a couple who occasionally post on here who are frustrated about not getting paid work.

I've also been contacted by others via PM, who are in the same boat. There are not many paid jobs in football in Australia.

If we could change the model for local clubs there would be a lot more paid jobs.

It's a sad situation, but I really don't think the infrastructure is there for more (and higer) paid jobs to become available. When there are essentially 11 decently paying jobs for somebody who holds say, a UEFA Pro Diploma, in this country due to infrastructure.. Not much can be done.

For those wanting an English speaking UEFA qualification , look at the Irish FA (northern ireland) .
They are apparantly less difficult to pass, might explain Jim Magilton then.

Thanks mate.

I've just emailed the KNVB.


If the French did one in English that would be good too.

No worries :)

Would be amazing if the French had *any* courses in English! The English FA seem to be on the right track though. Time will tell :)

Grass Roots Certificate - takes 2 - 2 hours 30 minutes. A certificate is awarded. There is no test. It costs nothing.

Junior Licence- I'm not sure how long it takes. It costs money, probably about $100.

Youth Licence - used to take three days. It used to cost about $150.

Senior Licence - used to take four days. It would cost around $200.



Advanced Courses cost a fortune.

Centalised C Licences cost about $3500 to $5000. They take about 2 weeks. Locally organised C Licence only costs $1600.

Assessments usually comprise a set task- passing, shooting, dribbling. Then one has to prepare an exercise that deals with the coaching task. One often has to use other players in the course as the players in the assessment.

Would just like to add to the info that Decentric provided that if you're looking at moving on to do the Advanced Courses Roar #1, there are no set prerequisites, it's only recommended that you complete at least one of the lower level courses. Best option would probably be to do all of them :)

I've just enrolled in the Senior Certificate I, II and Senior License as a bundle. It is held over 3 days and cost me $190.
