If you're an FA Level 1 or 2 learner, continuous professional development hours are optional and so there is no longer a requirement for licensing. We would however always encourage coaches to continuously develop themselves whether that is attending events or online CPD. 

If you're a UEFA qualified coach, however, you are required to complete 15 hours of CPD every three years to maintain your licence, which The FA recommends is best achieved by completing 5 hours per season

Absolutely. Our events are delivered with no charge, you will just need to book a place on the event prior to turning up.
