Nov. 05, 2015, 3:01 p.m. (ET)

As part of USA Taekwondo’s commitment to providing a safe sporting environment,
it is now a requirement that all Coach and Instructor members complete the FREE USOC SafeSport training course online.
Click here for list of members who have completed the course and are now SafeSport Certified!

The course is a series of videos and quizzes that cover all aspects of SafeSport, covering in-depth what is and what isn’t appropriate behavior, and what you can do about it.

The course takes around 90 minutes to complete, but don’t worry if you can’t complete it in one sitting, as your username and password will save your progress and you can pick up where you left off later. 

Coaches and Instructors must complete this course before the end of the year (December 31, 2015). If you do not finish by this date the Hangastar system will not allow you to register for any further USA Taekwondo events until you have done so. 
Once you have successfully completed the course you will be fully SafeSport certified and receive a certificate you can proudly display.

Please see below for complete instructions on how to register and ensure you get credit for taking the course.

New Coach/Instructor members joining USA Taekwondo after January 1, 2016, will have 7 days to complete the training.

We believe this FREE educational module will be of great benefit to all Taekwondo coaches and instructors, and we hope you will join us in recognizing the importance of the SafeSport program and continue working with us to make Taekwondo in the United States safer, stronger and more successful in the future. 

Safeguarding of athletes must be, and is, one of the most important things we all do on a daily basis, and this training is a cornerstone of that effort going forward.
