This course is for coaches of Senior Amateur Teams and Talented players aged 17 and older, and is open to coaches 18 years of age.


The course is the first step on the FFA Advanced Pathway to become a professional coach, and there is significant amount of work to be completed before you attend the course. It is highly recommended that coaches who have not previously attended any other coaching courses complete the FFA Game Training Certificate first. Click here for more information.
