The A Licence means the 38-year-old can now manage in the professional game, below Premier League level or at an Academy.
To be able to take a job in the top flight or manage in UEFA competitions he must now go on to complete the Pro Licence.
Henry took the coaching course under the auspices of the Football Association of Wales, as he did for the B Licence last year.
The Sky Sports pundit was also granted access to the club’s successful Hale End academy to work with the club’s future talent.
His experience with Arsenal’s youth teams provided him with valuable hands-on training.
He wrote: ‘Massive thank you to Osian Roberts, @welshfootballtrust and the Arsenal Academy for assisting me to pass my UEFA A Licence coaching badge. #proudday.’
