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.
