Coach Education FAQS

Each coaching course has its own specific pre-requisites (some are open entry) and these can be found on each course specific  page of our website. It is the learner’s responsibility to ensure they meet the pre-requisites before booking onto the chosen course. Failure to meet these pre-requisites may mean you are removed from the course or are not certificated.

All the courses we have available are visible on our website.
 
We are always working hard to provide a variety of courses in a variety of formats across the county throughout the year. If you would like to be notified as soon as courses are released, please download the HFA App from the google play/app store.

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.

Unfortunately not. This is because as part of your assessment, you will have in situ visits where your tutor will come and visit you at your club when you’re coaching. All of our tutors are Hertfordshire based, which is why we encourage Hertfordshire coaches only to book onto our courses.

Unfortunately not. This is because you need to be actively coaching within Hertfordshire so you are able to have your in situ visits. Without these visits, you will not gain your level 2 coaching qualification.

Unfortunately not. All of the courses we run have a very strict structure, and must be completed in order. Each course has its own pre-requisites, which you must have prior to booking onto the course.

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.

We are unable to reserve places or take part payments for any of our courses. Bookings are taken on a first come first served basis from online registration where full payment is required.

Learners unable to attend courses or individual course dates they have booked on to are not permitted to transfer between courses or transfer their place between individuals.
