Currently, FFA Advanced Coaching Licenses are valid for a four year period. As mandated in the AFC Coaching Convention, from 1st January 2019 all FFA Advanced Coaching Licences will now be valid (accredited) for three consecutive years. New Licenses will be issued for a three year period, and existing licenses will be revalidated for three years when re-validation is due.
During this three year period, coaches are required to gain 100 points of “Continued Professional Development” to have their licence revalidated for a further three years.
If at the end of the three-year accreditation period the coach has not accumulated the required number of points or attended the next level of Advanced licence, their current Advanced licence will no longer be valid and the coach will then be considered to have no current accreditation.
If a licence is not currently valid, the coach has one year to regain their accredited status by completing 100 points of “Continued Professional Development”. As soon as 100 points have been gained, a coach’s licence will be deemed to be valid. As per the AFC Coaching Convention, if the coach fails to complete 100 points of CPD, within one year of their license expiring, they will lose their accreditation, and be required to complete that course again if they wish to retain their accreditation.
