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.
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
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.
