Safe Environment Training for Volunteers
Anyone entrusted with the care, responsibility, and or supervision of children, youth, or vulnerable adults or who wants unsupervised access to these vulnerable populations MUST successfully complete a Level 2 FBI/Florida Department of Law Enforcement background check performed by the Diocese of St. Petersburg based on electronic fingerprinting.
To complete the certification you must:
1. Attend a Safe Environment Program Training for Access to Children - You can view a schedule here. Once complete you will receive a certificate of completion, which is good for 5 years. Please bring that certificate to the school.
2. Fingerprint-Based Background Screening: You must attend one of the locations to get your fingerprints. These have a cost of $55 and are valid for 5 years. You can't put a price tag on the safety of our children.
For any questions, please contact the Office of the Safe Environment Program within the Diocese of St. Petersburg at 727-344-1611, ext. 5303
