New USA Swimming Safe Sport Athlete Protection Training Launches
Curriculum launches on new LEARN platform
USA-Swimming Safe Sport program introduces new Athlete Protection Training courses that will be available today for all non-athlete members.

The courses will serve to fulfill the membership's APT requirement.
The courses that will be offered include:

The Safe Sport Athlete Protection Training will mark the start of the flow of content that will be added.
Non-athlete members of USA Swimming must fulfill their APT requirement every two years.
LEARN features a point-based certification system, and members will earn 75 points to complete the requirement.

The newly formed platform includes a mobile-responsive design for the ability to access the educational materials on the pool deck or at home.
