USAS Athlete Protection Training Has Changed

Athlete Protection Training requirement has changed


In January 2019, the Safe Sport staff sent a notice to all USA Swimming non-athlete members about changes to the Athlete Protection Training. Every USA Swimming member or individual with authority over, or frequent contact with, athletes will now be required to annually complete the U.S. Center for SafeSport “Core Center for SafeSport Training” educational resource or its refresher course.

Starting February 4, 2019, the Core went live on the USA Swimming LEARN platform. If you have any questions about this training requirement please don’t hesitate to contact the Safe Sport staff.  

You must take three courses to complete the requirement:

  1. "Sexual Misconduct Awareness Education"
  2. "Mandatory Reporting"
  3. "Emotional and Physical Misconduct"
  4. Once you have completed your courses, your membership record will update within 24 hours with a new APT expiration date.
  5. Your APT will expire 12 months after you complete all three courses.
