Safe Colleges at ACC
As part of our efforts to improve safety at Alpena Community College, we have partnered with SafeColleges to bring training to all students and staff at ACC. As a public institution of higher education, we are each responsible to complete various safety training programs, as well as designated federally-mandated training. ACC now offers convenient access for you to complete these training programs online.
Online Portal to ACC SafeColleges
The online training is available and offered to all ACC students and employees. This program offers several self-paced safety courses which can be accessed 24/7 and comes with a printable certificate of successful completion. The certificates do not need to be signed for completion. Each course takes about half an hour to complete and will walk you through situations that you might encounter.
- Sexual Violence Awareness
- Bystander Intervention
- Study Skills
- Time Management
- And more
Some of the topics covered in these trainings are “hot” or contentious topics. These topics could cause you to feel uncomfortable if your previously held thoughts are challenged, or re-traumatized if you have been victimized in the past. It is important to cover these topics in order to better understand them. If you yourself feel traumatized by any topic covered or video watched, please reach out to one of the resources below.

Students will receive information on SafeColleges through their MyACC email. This email will come from a non-ACC email address but will have information identifying it as SafeColleges through ACC. Students will also receive emails periodically throughout the semester reminding them to complete their training. This training is mandatory. While only a few of the topics are mandatory, students are encouraged to complete any additional training topics that they find interesting. These trainings cover topics that will be beneficial to students not only during their time at ACC, but as they go forward in life.
