We received new information from the Center for SafeSport regarding changes to Refresher training and SafeSport training.  There will be a blackout period when training will not be available.   NO COURSES will be available from Wednesday, September 27, 2017 at11:59m Eastern time until Monday, October 2, 2017

To facilitate this shortened interruption of service, please note the following:

Even if users have an account on the existing system, they will need to create a NEW account when accessing the Center for SafeSport’s new platform. 

  1. Anyone wishing to complete the existing course materials, including the refresher course, on the current USOC’s must do so by Wednesday, September 27 at 11:59 PM ET.  
  2. Those who haven’t completed open courses by this deadline will lose their progress and will have to complete the new three-course SafeSport training, which will feature updated content.  

 

NEW PLATFORM, NEW COURSES

The new SafeSport LMS platform and three-course SafeSport training (which will be available at https://safesport.org) will launchMonday, October 2. Each of these three courses is approximately 30 minutes:  

Sexual Misconduct Awareness Education

Reporting Child Sexual Abuse

  1. Emotional and Physical Misconduct

 

After September 27, individuals seeking initial certification or recertification as dictated by USOC policy will need to complete the updated, three-course SafeSport training. Upon completion of the online SafeSport training, individuals will be certified for two years. Again, users may continue to access the existing training on the USOC’s through September 27. 

A new SafeSport refresher course will be added to the platform in 2018. This will be an abbreviated version intended for individuals who have previously completed the three core SafeSport courses and need to recertify. Users completing the SafeSport refresher course will be certified for an additional two years.
