The UEFA Pro License is a coach licence from UEFA (the governing body of association football in Europe). The UEFA Pro Licence is the final coaching qualification available, and follows the completion of the UEFA 'B' and 'A' Licences.
A UEFA Pro Licence is required by anyone who wishes to manage a football club in the top level of the nation's league system on a permanent basis (i.e. more than 12 weeks – the amount of time an unqualified caretaker manager is allowed to take control). This applies to both the head coach or team manager, and such a licence is also required to manage in the UEFA Champions League or UEFA Cup.
The course contains workshops involving topics from fitness to injury prevention and player agents to transfer protocols. There are three levels of progression, with each focusing on more in-depth detail. After each section applicants must take a written exam from a number of topics and successfully conduct a supervised training session.
