In August 2016 the course were re-launched, does this affect FA Level 1 and 2 in Coaching Football coaches qualified before this date?

All previously gained FA Level 1 and 2 in Coaching Football qualifications remain valid. We recommend ensuring your FA Safeguarding Children training, FA Level 1 Introduction to First Aid in Football (IFAiF) and FA DBS check (if needed) remain in-date, and you complete Continual Professional Development (CPD) to remain current.


We have produced a recognition of prior learning document that outlines how the changes impact all current and prospective coaches. You can also find more information on how this affects you here.
