SafeSport Training

  
  


SafeSport Training is required every two years for coaches and officials.
For all individuals listed here (renewing and aspiring officials click here) who are completing the online SafeSport training for the first time, please follow the instructions below to register for and take the required training.  NOTE: Members renewing their SafeSport education requirement please see step 3 for the option of taking the 'SafeSport Refresher' course in lieu of the full-length course:

1.    Go to http://training.teamusa.org/
2.    Click on 'Store'
3.    Click on 'SafeSport' (for members renewing SafeSport education, click 'SafeSport Refresher' in lieu of the full course)
4.    Click 'Add to Bag'
5.    Click 'Check-out'
6.    Click 'Register'
7.    Fill in the required fields that follow and click 'Save'. (Be sure to enter your USA Cycling license number correctly into the "Confirmation Number" field; we’ve seen several typos which cause delays in crediting your account.)
8.    You may also add additional NGBs you want your completion notice sent to

Once you have an account, you may begin taking the training by clicking on 'Courses' from the main navigation or 'Click here to view your courses' from your Welcome message. If you do not have time to complete the course during your visit, your completed training sessions will be saved and you may sign back in at any time to resume your training. USA Cycling will receive notification from the USOC upon your completion of the training and your account will be updated accordingly.

If you have completed this course for another sport or taken a similar course, such as Respect In Sport, you can receive credit towards this requirement by sending a completion certificate to safesport@usacycling.org.


COACHES

  1. All new coaches will have to complete their SafeSport Training obligation 60 days from the time their license is issued. If the training is not completed within the 60 days, the license will be suspended until the training is complete
  2. All coaches must complete the SafeSport Refresher course every two years*. The refresher course is a 30 min condensed version of the original SafeSport training.
  3. Coaches will receive email reminder notices to complete their training 60, 45, 30, 15, 7 and 2 days prior to their license being suspended for not meeting the SafeSport training.
  4. In addition to the email notifications, you will soon be able to check the number of days you have to complete SafeSport training by logging into your account and clicking on the “license” link
*The two year policy is based of calendar years. For example, if you took your initial SafeSport training at any time in 2015, you will need to complete the refresher course within the first 60 days of 2017 to avoid your license being suspend.
 

OFFICIALS: NEW EFFECTIVE AUGUST 1ST, 2015
