The course is a fully funded three month intensive (6 hours a day, 5 days a week) and provides a fantastic opportunity to learn from some of the world's top coaches (http://fie.org/media/news/313).
 
The AFF anticipates that further opportunities to participate in similar courses may become available in the future.
