One of the most exciting aspects of the USA Hockey SafeSport Program is the online training/education that is available to help our members become aware of the information necessary to help prevent abuse from occurring in our sport. We are pleased to announce that all USA Hockey registered coaches, officials, employees and volunteers are entitled to take the training at no cost.
The SafeSport Training and Refresher Training are each valid for two (2) seasons. Thus, if you took the training during the 2017-18 season, it is valid for the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons.
As of January 1, 2018, all relevant individuals who need to be SafeSport certified or are seeking recertification will need to complete the new three-course SafeSport training, which features updated content.
Upon completion of the online SafeSport training, individuals will be certified for two seasons. A new SafeSport refresher course will eventually be added to the platform. 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.
PLEASE NOTE that you will need your own USA Hockey Confirmation Number or Referee Number and your own email address to access the training. Additionally you will need to access the training from the link provided under "Register for SafeSport Training."
