Leonard Mpulula receives International Coaching Certificate
Malawi Under-17 (“Junior Flames”) and Azam Tigers coach Leonard Mpulula received his coaching certificate today at the German Embassy in Lilongwe. He successfully completed a three-week International Coaching Course (B-Level) of the German Football Association (Deutscher Fussball Bund, DFB) in Hennef, Germany, from 23 April to 11 May 2012.
The training courses for coaches organised by the DFB have proven to be extremely effective in developing coaching skills. On behalf of the German Foreign Office, the DFB holds courses several times a year for coaches from developing countries, who in turn pass on the skills learned to football enthusiasts in their home countries.
The B-Level certificate enables a coach to participate in the A-Level Course, a further step on the way to acquiring a professional coaching license. The training and examination comprised subjects such as Club Training Observation, Laws of the game, Promotion of talents and Football Methodology.
During the event the Embassy also donated footballs to Leo’s team, Azam Tigers and the Junior Flames who were coming from Zambia where they finished third in the 2012 Zone VI Games.
