FA Support Portal

I have received an email stating that in order to complete my Level 1 in Coaching Football, I need to undertake the Introduction to First Aid in Football (IFAiF) course, how do I do this?

We will contact you before the spring to confirm the launch date for the new IFAiF course. You will be emailed instructions on how to access the course and will be required to complete the course in your own time. As you’ve already paid for your Level 1 course there will be no additional costs passed on. The course is fully digital and should take less than two hours to complete.  


Once you’ve successfully completed the IFAiF course, you will be awarded your FA Level 1 in Coaching Football and a certificate will be sent to you in the post from 1st4sport.
