How to Get a UEFA Coaching License in the U.S.
UEFA stands for Union of European Football Associations, which governs most of the big football clubs in Europe. They have certification courses for coaches ranging from beginner to pro, which is for coaches at the highest professional level. There are, however, online courses for beginners and mid-level coaches that can be taken by coaches or those interested in coaching. The certificate issued after finishing these courses looks great on a resume and can increase your chances of getting higher level jobs coaching soccer in the United States.
Navigate to the official UEFA online learning course page.
Click on the Step 1 Online course for Level One Coaches. This is the course that anyone, even those with just an interest in coaching, can take.
