All volunteers involved in church based activities are required to undertake safeguarding training, which needs to be refreshed every 3 years. Courses are available on-line and can be found HERE.
The Diocese require each Parish to maintain a central record of all training undertaken by volunteers, so once you have completed the on-line course you should save or print off the completion certificate. A copy of this should be sent to the church administrator, soft copies can be sent to her at: email@example.com
