A Three-Step Process

(Steps may be completed in any order)

1. Background Check – Each organization requires its own Background Check. We understand this means you may need to complete multiple background checks but this to protect your privacy. There is no additional charge for the ISI Background Check and you can submit it before or after you register and pay for your membership.
Submit Background Check

2. SafeSport Certification – If you have already taken SafeSport™ Trained (within the past 2 years) or the Refresher 1: Recognizing and Reporting Misconduct there is a place on our online registration form to upload your certificate document from your computer. If you have not completed the SafeSport training course (SafeSport™ Trained or Refresher 1) you will need to complete it before your ISI Professional membership is considered valid.
