The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has disclosed that all local football coaches practicing in Zambia will now be accredited by FAZ.
FAZ General Secretary George Kasengele has announced that the accreditation process for coaches will be done as and when all the coaches attend training courses organised by FAZ.
The decision comes after some comparisons were made by some soccer administrators on the credibility of training courses organised by FAZ and those being conducted in Europe.
Kasengele explained that Licence A to C badges are an initiative between CAF and UEFA adding that any licences obtained in these categories is as good as that obtained in Europe.
ZANIS Sports reports that Kasengele said the accreditation process will be undertaken by the FAZ technical directorate headed by Honour Janza.
In December 2013, FAZ organised the CAF A coaching licence course which was the first ever training course to be conducted in Zambia.
Kasengele expressed happiness with the turnout of participants adding that FAZ will stick to the existing club licensing system which demands that only qualified coaches sit on the technical bench.
