Certificates for the FA Level 1 & 2 courses are issued through 1st4Sport once FA Education have updated your record. All online elements must be completed and registers must be returned in order for the administration process of your certificate to start. It usually takes 1st4Sport 8 - 10 weeks to process candidates' certificates.
Certificates for FA Safeguarding Children Workshop or the FA Level 1 Introduction to First Aid have to be downloaded from your learning record. Guidance on how to do it is attached. Any other certificates are sent through the post to the address you supply when booking the course. If your address changed since you applied, you need to let us know about it, otherwise the certificate will go to the address we have on our records. Please note that the processing time is the same for all certificates, whether downloadable or sent by post, and it is 8-10 weeks.
