Online Safeguarding Recertification

All coaches working with under 18 teams in FA Charter Standard Clubs need to have an up to date ‘Safeguarding Children’ certificate as part of the FA Charter Standard Health Check. An up to date certificate is one that is less than three years old.

The FA has launched an Online Safeguarding Children Recertification course to make it easy for Coaches to update their training. Any coach that has completed the 3 hour face-to-face ‘Safeguarding Children Workshop’ can take this course.

Because The FA values FA Charter Standard Clubs and wants to support you through the Health Check process we are providing free access to the Recertification course for up to 10,000 coaches at Charter Standard Clubs.

To access the course all you need is:

• Your FAN
• Your password

Full guidance on how to access the courses can be downloaded here.

To retrieve your existing FAN and/or FAN password click here. Please note, registering for a new FAN will not work as your original Safeguarding Certificate will not be associated with it.
