Joining CCSSEF

CCSSEF is a robust and growing organization that does not have membership capped or a waiting list to join.

All new members are REQUIRED to complete the Standard Operating Procedures Test (SOP) with at-least a 90% score.  In addition, new members must complete the Foundation safety orientation. This is a one time task that will be recorded in your membership record and will not need to be repeated. The SOP test can be taken online at  SOP Test or at the Clubhouse on Saturdays during membership hours (10am – 1pm). The SOP test is an open book test.  The current SOP’s are available online at SOP’s.
