Participants of AFC C Certificate Coaching
Ladies and Gentlemen
Assalamualaikum Warrahmatullahi Wabarrakatuh and
Alhamdulilah, once again NFABD has successfully
conducted the fourth AFC C Certificate Coaching
Course since 2014 and the first one of many more
to come for this year 2015. The Course was
conducted for 12 days, that is 85 hours in total
and it covered both theory and practical aspects
of football coaching. These coaches’ certificate
courses are very important. This is also a way
to assess our coaches in their practical
abilities and knowledge of the law of the game.
In this way, we can develop quality coaches who
can go further and attain higher certificates.
Last year, our Football Development Department (FDD)
was able to organise AFC Courses and FIFA
Courses. InsyaaAllah, this Department will
continue to organize and provide more of AFC and
FIFA courses in the coming months so that we can
produce qualified and recognised coaches, not
only in Brunei but also by AFC. Thus in the long
run, by having such well trained and certified
coaches, we will be able to produce qualify
football players who can be recognised to play
not only for the national team but also for
other international teams.
For this particular Course, which was completed
today, I understand that there are altogether 16
participants have attended the course including
one from Spain. Mr Alain Barrantes, I thank you
for your full support and willingness to
participate in the Course although you are based
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I would also like to extend my deep appreciation
and thank you to our very own Technical Director
Mr Mike Wong and his team from NFABD who have
worked hard and have put tremendous efforts to
make this course successful.
Finally, I wish to congratulate all participants
who will receive their certificates of
attendance this afternoon. I hope that you will
all work hard to achieve further qualification
in order to upgrade your licence to eventually
reach the A-Licence.
I wish all participants good luck in their
career as football coaches and to Mr Alain
Barrantes, a safe flight back to Singapore.
Wabillahi taufiq walhidayah wassalamualaikum
warahmatullahi wabarakatuh and good afternoon.
