The Course

  • Systematic teaching of all FIFA regulations, broken down into manageable sections that are easy to comprehend.
  • Expert videos that explain complex regulatory provisions and concepts.
  • Regulatory e-guides that outline objectives and applications of regulatory provisions.
  • Practical case studies that demonstrate the practical applications of regulations.
  • Knowledge checks that provide continuous feedback to reinforce and consolidate your understanding.
  • Practice examinations that replicate the FIFA Football Agent Examination, providing you with a real exam experience ahead of the actual exam.
