FAW C-Certificate: A new approach to modern soccer coaching education

The FAW C-Certificate is delivered utilizing a variety of in-person education contacts and online workshops. It is designed to educate candidates in the technical, physical, psychological, and social requirements of modern football. It will develop candidates’ ability to plan, prepare, deliver, and reflect on coaching sessions for the development of players. The course has been designed to support the modern coach, with education consisting of online modules, distance learning, webinars (utilizing Microsoft Teams) and practical (in-person) contacts as well as the requirement to coach within your own coaching environment. During the course, coaches learn about the key requirements of supporting an individual within modern football, developing players across our four pillars (Technical, Physical, Psychological and Social) and their ability to plan, prepare and reflect on sessions. There is no formal assessment.
