FAQS

Yes, Coaches are required to complete all the blocks of the FA Level 2 starting with Block 1 "How We Coach". Coaches who have completed their Youth Award Module may be able to join the course during block 2 or 3.

Coaches that have completed either their FA Level 2 Block 1 or their Youth Award Module 1 (YAM 1) can enroll onto Block 2.

If you have already got your YAM 2 you can enroll straight on to block 3 of the FA Level 2 course. Coaches with their YAM 1 are still required to take block 2 if they want to complete their FA Level 2
