If you are completely new to coaching you will need to complete The FA Level 1 in Coaching Football first.
 
If you already hold an existing FA Level 1 you can go to the new FA Level 2 in Coaching Football qualification taking into consideration the action plan you received from your course tutor.

Unfortunately not. Each individual learner is required to book their place using their own FAN and Password. This is to ensure our information on medical conditions, emergency contacts etc is accurate and up to date. The booking agreement is always between Hertfordshire FA and the individual learner.
No, learners are required to attend all dates and times associated to the course they have booked onto. Failure to attend all dates and times will result in non-qualification and individuals will need to book and pay to attend the course again in full to become certificated.

Each coaching course has its own specific pre-requisites (some are open entry) and these can be found on each course specific page page of our website. It is the learner’s responsibility to ensure they meet the pre-requisites before booking onto the chosen course.

As long as your certificates are dated within 3 years at the time of your start date and completion date of The FA Level 1 award you won't need to take the courses.

You will need to attend this course as it’s Football specific.
