Where is the Part 2 Senior and Youth choices?

In mid-2021 changes were made by Football Australia to advanced courses and their structure. The C Licence had the most significant change with the course no longer broken into parts and merging into one singular structure.

How do I register for a C Licence course?

Registration is completed via JotForm or if a club is paying for the licence, it is required that the Club Secretary/President contacts and an invoice will be issued. Invoices for clubs will not be issued if a request is made via the individual coach or club technical director.

How much does a C Licence cost?

The full price of the C Licence is $1,185.00

When does payment need to be made?

Payment by coaches needs to be made in full at the time of registering through JotForm. Club Invoices need to be paid in full at least one month prior to the start date.

How long does the course take?

A general outline is given below:

Online Learning                               12 hours

Practical Demonstration                               8 hours

Practical Coaching                                         30 hours

Practical Discussions                                     8 hours

Practical Assessment                      2 hours

What happens if I can’t attend one of the days?

100% attendance is required. Please ensure you have closely checked your availability for each day given on the website or JotForm. If there are unforeseen circumstances that prevent you from attending a particular day, you will have to attend that day on another course.

What do I need to do prior to the course?

A course information pack will be issued to all registered participants one month from the start date with all the relevant information needed for the course. This pack will not be issued earlier than this date unless all spots are filled prior to the one month from start date.

How long does my accreditation last?

C Licence accreditation is valid for a period of three years. During the re-accreditation period, coaches will need to accrue a total of 100 points, which can be gained through Coaching Conferences, CPD Coaching Workshops, Registration in PlayFootball or attending a Football Australia/AFC ‘B’ Licence.
