My dad did it a couple of years ago and i can remembering it not being that tricky.

He got a PC quiz thing with it that had loads of questions on and was quite fun to do :)

I started it...was very good whilst I was there, I got booted off though for persistant back-chat, doing what I want etc.

I'm doing mine in the summer for £50, already manage a football team though they are under 13's. Looking forward to doing it now and will most likely move on to level 2, UEFA B etc.

My local college were hosting a course when I started, not the college itself, but FA coaching instructors used the facilities to teach

Not sure how it's done in england but the Scottish one is just a case of showing up really you learn the basics of coaching football and so on. obviously the more you do the mroe advanced it gets. I got my level 2 coaching young footballers with the SFA through the team I manage. Only thing I had to do was come up with a skill to do and teach it in the correct manner. Something you really can't go wrong with. But as I said that's in Scotland but don't knock our coaching as we do have a facility where the best coaches including Mourninho went to :p

Your club should pay for it if your coaching for them tbh.

this is the one i was planning on doing. you need to have done at least one of the coaching courses and have a little bit of experience outside of the course. dunno how hard it is to actually be choosen though http://www.challengersports.com/

You dont have to have that much skill to do level 1 but obviously for the higher levels you will need to have at least some. for level 1 i think you just need basic sports skills and simple things like passing, warming up that kinda stuff. Im not sure on league 2 coaching either level 3 or the one up from that i expect but once you get to the higher ones it costs around a grand to do the courses!!

yep dam expensive.... level 3 wont get you in to a league 2 club, thats more semi-pro/ up to blue sq prem maybe..
its mainly after level three, when u can be expected to earn a few thousand a week =D

Thats if u can get a job at a major club in those leagues.

Apprently have degrees from good unis aswell helps you there in that stage.

One name springs to mind when you ask this question about being good at football.

Jose Mourinho. You don't need to be good at football or anysport to coach in it. You need leadership qualities, decision making, being able to explain things to a different range of people such as 5 year olds and 35year olds etc many different aspects.

The first and second levels of FA coaching are very simple and easy to complete. i have completed both, 1 though college the other Uni.

there is plenty of paper work to get through, but other than that its very simple, on a very simplistic scale.

Correct.. i also have both.. And to be able to attempt level 3 you need to have access to a club with you coach for (semi-pro level minimum) as it takes 6months of so to do.. and involves alot a paper work.. like player profiles
