Helpful hints:  Once on the USA Swimming Learn page, click on “Courses” at the top of the page.  Along the left side of the screen “Courses” narrow down your search by clicking on the appropriate “For” (example:  Parent) and then clicking on “SafeSport" under “Topic.”  Once you've chosen the appropriate course, click on the “Add to Cart."  Even though there is no charge for these classes you still need to “Check Out.”  Once you’ve checked out the course will appear on your “Dashboard” and is ready to go!
