This study aims to measure and evaluate the technical and understanding of coaches via Football Work-Based Learning (F-WBL) module [ISBN 978-967-0783-33-8] pilot test. The process involved three phases: Phase 1, the in formation of the F-WBL concept and items; Phase 2, the practical’s based on technics at stage 1 of F-WBL Module; and Phase 3, the actual study and validation of the Effective of understanding of coaches (14 coaches) and football players (17 players) by entering a test at the end of the process. The Competencies Based Analysis that focus on 2 main domains that includes; understanding (cognitive) of F-WBL technics & the Effectiveness (competencies) of F-WBL technics. The data’s shown that for the domain understanding of the process F-WBL for coaches at 100%, but for domain understanding of the process F-WBL for players at 53%. This data’s means that all coaches entering the course understand the concept but almost of players still not fix to full fill the maximum need of F-WBL trainers. Almost players should enter the next course to ensure they will meet the maximum standard of trainer for F-WBL need. This about quality of football player producing, so all players should more practice to ensure all technical knowledge at stage 1 they can achieve to meet the maximum quality standard of F-WBL competency needs. This F-WBL development based on understanding and competency assessment looks full fill the needs of football coaches and football player development in Malaysia. Hopefully this F-WBL module will works as new sport science instrument for football player development.
