ATHLETE PROTECTION TRAINING

INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETION

To complete the Athlete Protection Training Certification, please follow the directions below:

Enter your first name, last name, and birthday. Make sure to use your legal name. Click the Search button.
When the system finds you, click on "CONTINUE" to access the LEARN site.
You must take three courses to complete the requirement:

"Sexual Misconduct Awareness Education"
"Mandatory Reporting"
"Emotional and Physical Misconduct"


You must complete the last evaluation questions on the three required courses, so that it will appear in SWIMS and match to your member record. Once you have fulfilled the requirement there will be a check mark on the course and you will receive an email congratulating you for completing the requirement.

Once you have completed your courses, your membership record will update within 24 hours with a new APT expiration date.

Your APT will expire 12 months after you complete all three courses.

Members must always enter LEARN via www.usaswimming.org/learn or www.usaswimming.org/apt.  If you create a non-member account, you will not receive credit for the courses that you take.

If you get a "No Results Found" message, one of three things has happened:

You may have made a typo on your name and birthday. Double check and resubmit.
If everything is correct and you are or have ever been a member of USA Swimming, it is possible that there is a typo in your membership information in the USA Swimming database. Contact your LSC registrar.
You have never been registered with USA Swimming. You must join through your LSC. New members will be required to have your application form and payment processed by your LSC registrar before you can sign in to complete the course.
