Trainings for Liaisons:

There are three online training courses to be completed before you can become an AFS liaison: the Hosting and Support Affiliations (HSA) Training, the Department of State (DoS) Local Coordinator Training, and the online Liaison Training. All of the training is required for anyone who has regular contact with exchange students and host families.

Please follow the links to complete the online training at your earliest convenience. Each link will prompt you to enter your Global Link user name and password. Please make sure the volume on your computer is turned up as most of these modules have voice narration.

Once you have passed the exam, you have the option of printing a copy of your Certificate of Completion.
