FAQs

CPD refers to a practical or online learning opportunity – such as a regional workshop, an FA conference, online courses and webinars – that are delivered outside of our formal qualification pathways.

Coaching, as both a vocation and a profession, never stands still. It’s always evolving and always seeking out the newest innovations, emerging trends and latest best practice. This is where CPD comes in. These events are not only crucial in exposing you as a coach to up-to-date thinking and methods, but they’ll also give you the skills needed to create and sustain modern learning environments for your players.

After attending each CPD event (online or face-to-face) your FAN record will be updated with Development Hours based on the length of the workshop attended.
