We are passing along another update related to the transition of the SafeSport Training. In addition, we will post updates online at www.usahockey.com/safesport to keep the USA Hockey membership up to date on any impact of this transition. We have now been notified that the new estimated launch date is Monday, November 6, 2017.
Please note anyone wishing to complete the existing SafeSport course offerings, including the Refresher course, must now do so NO LATER THAN WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2017 AT 11:59pm EASTERN TIME.
NO COURSES will be available from Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 11:59pm Eastern time until Monday, November 6, 2017.
Following November 1, all relevant individuals who need to be SafeSport certified or are seeking recertification will need to complete the new full SafeSport training course, which will be available Monday, November 6, and will feature updated content. Upon completion of the online SafeSport training, individuals will be certified for two seasons. 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 seasons.
