When you have successfully completed all three courses, the SafeSport certification will automatically be added to your account.
How to access and complete the new SafeSport training courses:

- Select SafeSport in the menu under your name
- Click on “Add SafeSport”
- Click on the course you want to take

Each course will be added to your account as soon as you start the training. If you wish to complete the courses in different sessions, you will be able to log in and click on “Pending Approval” next to the course you wish to complete, and then follow the link to continue training.
Once you have successfully completed all three training courses, a certificate of completion will automatically be emailed to you.
