SafeSport notice

-

A notice received from Corrine Shigemoto

As notified earlier, the U. S. Center for SafeSport will be changing platforms effective November 6, 2017.

As a result of this change, the Refresher course (30 minute course) will NOT be available on this new platform until mid-2018. We are encouraging any individual needing to renew their certification do so prior to November 6 so that they can access the 30 minute course on the old platform.
