About

CSVS

Overview

The National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security's (NCS4) offers the nation’s first comprehensive sport and special event security credential for front line venue and event staff. The Certified Sport Venue Staff (CSVS) Certification is a two-part credential composed of a training certificate coupled with a background screening component. The strength of the CSVS lies in the capability to offer this two-part credential in a single package that is far more valuable than either one by itself.

The CSVS certification was designed by industry leading experts for both organizations who have front line staff critical to the safety and security of sport & special events, and for individuals seeking CSVS certification prior to employment. Those who go through this certification program will learn key core fundamentals and role-specific competencies, in addition to receiving a complete background screening.
