"I have done many other sports coaching courses (netball, rounders, multi skill) and The FA is in a league of its own. I can only relate The FA course to understanding children and understanding learning types like a teacher as opposed to a coach. Fantastic."

Yes you will. The FA Level 1 in Coaching Football is the pre-requisite for the The FA Level 2 in Coaching Football (Blocks 1-3). In addition you are required to hold a valid Emergency Aid/Introduction to First Aid in Football (IFAiF) and Safeguarding Children in Football certificate.
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.
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.
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.
We run a variety of courses in a variety of formats –some weekend only, some mid-week, some a mix of the two etc. We ensure that we run the variety of formats and courses across the county throughout the year and attendance may require flexibility from each learner i.e. travel further afield within the county to get the dates best suited or be flexible on dates to attend at preferred venue. Whilst we try to provide as many options to our volunteers as possible we are restricted to how we deliver courses due to tutor and facility availability.
