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.
We have previously sent reminders to people to complete training prior to September 18, as we did not know when service would be switching to new site, however there will now be a blackout period where no courses will be available (so much fun for me). Information is on our website, we have sent info to SafeSport Coordinators and will be getting information to programs.
Additional info below:
To facilitate this shortened interruption of service, please note the following:
NEW PLATFORM, NEW COURSES
The new SafeSport LMS platform and three-course SafeSport training (which will be available at https://safesport.org) will launch Monday, October 2. Each of these three courses is approximately 30 minutes:
After September 27, individuals seeking initial certification or re-certification 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 aded 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.
