WHAT'S NEW?

The credentialing system is now user friendly! The step-by-step system guides you through each step, prompting so you don't miss anything.

NEW BASELINE COURSE - FREE!

All coaches are encouraged to complete the Baseline Course whether credentialing or not. The Baseline Course provides information on vital topics like assessing and/or handling athletes with concussions, cardiac issues and overheating. This course MUST be completed by anyone wanting to credential or ADD TO their existing credentials. Access to the credentialing tests will not be allowed until the Baseline Course is completed.

NEW PERCENTAGE-COMPLETED TRACKER

A "% completed" tracker will display on your screen showing you how much of the process you have completed and how much you have left.
