The image above the course name calls it SafeSport Trained Core (although it is covered up somewhat by the number 1). You should see a price in blue with a shopping cart. That is the one you should purchase.

Q: Do I need an Enrollment Key, and if so what is it?

A: If you are only purchasing the course for yourself to take, you will not need an Enrollment Key. Enrollment Keys are used by organizations purchasing multiple SafeSport Trained Core courses so they can disseminate to those they want to take the course.
