There is no grace period; coach membership is not valid if any of the requirements lapse or expire. Coaches do not have USA Swimming insurance coverage if their membership is not valid; club insurance is also jeopardized by allowing coaches with lapsed certifications to be on deck. To help coaches manage their membership requirements, the date that each requirement expires is printed on the USA Swimming coach membership card, as well as being available on the Deck Pass app and through the online Club Portal. 
Unfortunately, USA Swimming cannot accept your background check for another organization. Currently, there is significant duplication of efforts with regard to background checks required by schools, churches, youth sports and employers in part because organizations are not permitted to share applicant’s background check reports with each other. In addition, different entities use different criteria to judge someone’s suitability for employment, membership or service. There are no standard criteria by which search reports are evaluated.
Coaches who do not have access to an acceptable CPR/AED course or have taken a course that is not on this list can call their local American Red Cross chapter to challenge one of their Adult and Pediatric CPR/AED courses. The challenge involves passing the skills assessment with an ARC instructor without having to take the entire course. The ARC will charge a fee for each challenge. Call your local ARC chapter to set up a challenge.
It is important to emphasize that the purpose of this background check is to determine an individual’s eligibility for membership in USA Swimming based on the criteria stated in the program overview found at www.usaswimming.org/backgroundcheck. This check is not intended to serve as a pre‐employment background screening program. The background check process is a criminal record search and is not a substitute for a club conducting appropriate pre‐employment screening of applicants. It is a club’s responsibility to screen potential employees. Clubs should carefully check references and prior employers, and consider requiring additional information such as driving records, before making a hiring decision.
Due to the unusually high access fees in certain counties of New York State, some members may be subject to an additional fee for county criminal record searches conducted in these counties. These counties are: Allegheny, Bronx, Cayuga, Cortland, Erie, Fulton, Hamilton, Kings (Brooklyn), Montgomery, Nassau, New York (Manhattan), Orleans, Queens, Richmond (Staten Island).

A: All coaches must complete the online course and test.  When the course is completed, save/print the Online Content Only certificate and forward it to your LSC registrar. The certificate will have a QR code that can be traced on ARC website. The course should take 2-3 hours to complete. Coaches can exit the course at any time and log back in to resume where they left off but once they start the final exam, they need to complete it in one session.
USA Swimming was among the first National Governing Bodies to require criminal background checks for coaches when the program was implemented in 2006. Since this program was initiated, criminal background checks have become a standard practice in the youth sports industry requiring not only coaches, but officials and others who have frequent and direct interaction with young people to complete background checks.
Another important question you need to ask is if their budget or revenue criterion matches the range for your product or service offering. If your product plays to the high end of the market and your lead’s budget is low, this just won’t work. So it is better to know the answer to this now rather than in the later stages once you’ve invested more time in the lead.
A collection of GMP audit checklists that can help assess compliance of staff, facility, and materials with regulatory manufacturing standards.

You distinguish yourself from the sea of competitors by creating great content. I'm not joking either. Creating high quality, highly relevant, engaging and SEO enhanced content is arguably the most important marketing exercise you can undertake. It takes a while for your content to be indexed by Google, but once it is the effects are cumulative (the more content you add, the more traffic you generate) and persistent (unlike online advertising, which offers no long term benefits).
