Although we are standing by the position that the level of Clubs operation, as well as the knowledge, competence and skills of the board members, department heads and Specialists are far more important than the most prestigious document, we decided to introduce a “Certification System”.
In this way, we confirm the use of professional support from FDI, present the history of coollaboration, the scope of development and the content evaluation by the Institute, additionally promote football Clubs awarded with the certificate, and enable the association of certified Clubs with certified Specialists.
Each Club, after receiving the FDI diploma, has access to its profile in the internal IT- system of Football Development Institute. Relevant information on the course of collaboration and all certificates appear in a special tab.
“Certification system” includes various grades. To obtain each of them, one single criterion from a specific group (Bronze, Silver) or the whole package of criteria (Gold, Platinum, Diamond) must be realized.
