Courses & licenses

The Irish FA offers an extensive range of coaching courses, catering for all levels of our game, and intended to provide the necessary coaching knowledge required, whether for the game at grassroots level or at professional level.

Irish FA / UEFA Pro Licence 2019-2020

Applications are now being sought for the upcoming Irish FA UEFA Pro Licence Diploma Course due to commence in May 2019

The highest coaching qualification in Europe, the UEFA Pro Licence Diploma Course is now a mandatory requirement to manage in the NI League, other European leagues and UEFA Club and International competitions 

The UEFA Pro Licence is an elite coaching qualification intended, by UEFA, only for those coaches who are currently, or who have the potential to be, working at the top professional leagues, clubs or at International level. It is not intended to be sought by coaches as an extra qualification to add to their CV if they have not the intention to work at elite competitions level.

If it is not your intention, or if it’s unlikely you will have the opportunity, to work at elite professional level, we would encourage you to find alternative courses and learning opportunities to extend your CV and improve your football knowledge without necessarily pursuing the UEFA Pro Licence.

*Candidates must hold a valid UEFA ‘A’ Licence to be eligible to apply

All applications received by the closing date of 5.00pm on Wednesday 21 November 2018 will be considered.
