  • What is the TFV?

    Wikipedia: The TFV belongs to the Northeastern German Football Association and is one of the state organizations of the German Football Association (German: Deutscher Fussball-Bund - DFB). The Thuringia Football Association (German: Thüringer Fußballverband - TFV), is the umbrella organization of the football clubs in the German state Thuringia and covers nine football districts. The TFV was founded in 1990 and has its headquarters in Erfurt.

  • Why should I do the course?

    Education, Licenses, and Network are the main reasons for a successful coaching career. The UEFA and DFB/TFV (German FA & State of Thuringia) coaching pathway is long and requires significant time and money investments. We understand that not every Coach is able to afford and has the time to take full advantage of the very limited courses offered in the UEFA territory. We are happy to finally offer virtual education via our platforms in cooperation with the TFV in Germany - official member of the DFB (German FA). You will receive an official license from the German TFV upon completion of this course.

  • Is this an official & acknowledged course?

    Yes, we offer OFFICIAL virtual education and a license in cooperation with the State of Thuringia in Germany - member of the DFB (German FA). However, it is not equal to the DFB/UEFA/TFV C or UEFA B license, you will need to take additional modules & exams (physically present) in Germany.

  • Will I receive credits for the UEFA C & B course?

    For each of our DFB/UEFA/TFV coaching course spots, there is at least 50 applicants. We select and recommend coaches based on this course to the German FA. However, graduating from the online license course gets you pre-qualified BUT is not a guarantee receiving a spot for the UEFA C or B license. Note: If you get selected for the UEFA/DFB/TFV C or UEFA/DFB/TFV B you will receive course credits towards your UEFA/DFB/TFV license fee AND you save approximately 26 hours of preparation time.

  • How many coaches will be able to take the course?

    We allow max 50 Coaches to take the course simultaneously. Each module assignments is sent to Germany and needs to get approved from our German licensed instructors. If the registration button is available it means spots are available and you can apply.

  • How long does it take to complete the course?

    Minimum is 8 weeks. Modules will get released every week for 8 weeks. You will be able to enter a new module if you pass the weekly assignment. If you need to skip a week no problem, but keep in mind you will only be able to receive your license and unlock other membership benefits once you completed all modules.

  • Do I have to have Coaching experience?

    No, the course can be taken without any prior coaching experience.

  • Why is the course so affordable?

    Education should be affordable! We partnered up with industry leading tools in the match analysis and coaching world. Together we provide exclusive insights and teaching modules as part of the course. If a coach decides to use one of these tools for their own coaching career afterwards, we receive a commission. However, we charge a minimum fee to make sure we only get coaches who are dedicated and committed to earn their license.

  • Do you have other projects with the DFB & TFV (German Football Association)

    Yes. In cooperation with the DFB Academy we had 3 soccer camps in Florida. We also help to select candidates for the DFB/UEFA/TFV Coaching licenses in cooperation with the State of Thuringia. Our community is growing every day, having consulted for the DFB (German FA) academy, Hertha BSC Berlin, Hamburger SV, matchmetrics, and many more European and American Professional Clubs, Players, Coaches, Colleges, and Companies.

  • Are the courses open to coaches outside USA?

    Yes, the courses are open to coaches from everywhere.

I can only say that I came away with a lot of knowledge and specific football information thanks to the TFV associate degree. Prior to being accepted to the UEFA B course I registered for the TFV and came a way with a lot of new learnings, the video content, teachers and assignments were engaging and interesting. The TFV course prepped me for the intensive UEFA B course in Germany, without the basic knowledge of the TFV course I don’t think I would have succeeded in passing my exams for the UEFA B. Even if you are an experienced soccer coach I guarantee you will come with away with having learned something new. I can only recommend Warubi for the professionalism and dedication to coaching development. The coaches from Thuringer Fußball Verband are experts in the field Of football

The German FA Coaching License (Associate Degree) had a lot of documentation, ressources and content learning. It was really interesting and worth the price! It had theoritical modules and practical modules which is great, because at the end we are coaches and we need to deliver on and off the field! It was a good preparation for the UEFA B License course. A lot of content will be seen during the 2 intensive weeks for the UEFA B. So, I advice to take it seriously.

Warubi definitely deliver what they promise. Actually, they deliver even more! An outstanding academic content (a mix of UEFA, German FA and other various content), delivered by tutors with empirical background, approachable and demanding, in the best way possible. I felt since day 1 that our success in the course was as well their success and they did the extra mile to ensure all the students/coaches had the opportunity to develop, create and overcome. But if you think a Coaching License is the best thing you will bring with you, I'm sorry to disappoint you! I've left Germany with something much more important than any qualification, I gained 30 friends! People that shared with me more than 15 days, 24/7 and so many memories. That network, companionship, healthy competition... That's priceless! This course was the best investment I ever made for my career. If you have the ambition, potential and a good fair amount of knowledge, Warubi is a "no brainer" as your next step for coaching qualifications. Thank you guys. ABN
