All of our volunteers must complete the Archdiocese Child Protection course. Once you have completed the initial course you may renew online annually.
Please note changes made to the Child Protection process:
The Safe Environments Program (Child Protection training) is required of all employees, all volunteers who have substantial contact with minors, and all clergy. The objective of the program is to provide specific training in the prevention, recognition and reporting of child abuse, as well as specific training in providing for safe environments for minors enrolled in Archdiocesan sponsored activities.
The 2019 Monthly Training Schedule may be found here.
In order to complete the initial training, you must:
- Log onto CMGConnect to create an online account. (Instructions for creating an account may be found here.)
- Complete the online Initial Live Safe Environment Training & Background Check Curriculum
- Attend an Initial Training Class (Pre-Registration is MANDATORY for attendance.)
- If you have any questions, please call Leanne Oberkirch 251-434-1559.
