Due to the Center for SafeSport’s transition to a new training platform called Absorb, the 16-digit code U.S. Soccer and its members use to access SafeSport training no longer works for new users to access training. Please use the following instructions for users who need to create an account and access training.

4. Click on “Menu” and select “Catalog”
5. Click the Start button for “SafeSport Trained – U.S. Soccer Federation” to complete the course
6. Upload your certificate of completion
