This introduction to the FA Level 2 is a great way of seeing inside the course and discovering what it’s all about. Our tutors will introduce you to the course structure, what’s involved across the various blocks of learning, as well as the type of in-club support you’ll receive in between modules. You’ll also explore practical skills on the course that can benefit your coaching, and ultimately benefit your players’ development.



Frequently asked questions about CPD events and additional learning.

If you're an FA Level 1 or 2 learner, continuous professional development hours are optional and so there is no longer a requirement for licensing .

If you're a UEFA qualified coach, however, you are required to complete 15 hours of CPD every three years to maintain your licence, which The FA recommends is best achieved by completing 5 hours per season.

Absolutely. The FA runs events all over the country and for all levels. To explore events please visit the national CPD events page.
