The mission of Safe Environment Training and Fingerprinting is to prevent abuse of children and vulnerable persons through education and awareness. The Diocese of Orlando is committed to protecting all children and vulnerable persons.
*Please note completion of Steps 1-4 of Safe Environment Certification may take up to one hour.
Step 1: Watch Safe Environment Certification video.
Step 2: When video is complete, read the diocesan Standards of Conduct and agree to terms. Proceed to quiz.
Step 3: Select parish/school/diocesan entity. Choose applicant type: volunteer, employee, vendor, clergy, or deacon. Complete 20 question quiz.
Step 4: Passing scores are 80% and above.
If you pass, you may immediately download your certificate. Results will also be emailed to selected diocesan entity and to the Human Resources Secretariat. A fieldprint code specific to that entity will appear on screen. You need this code for next step.

The Diocese of Orlando is required by the United States Catholic Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) to follow certain guidelines with regard to Safe Environment Training. As are all other archdioceses and dioceses, we are required to undergo regular audits by the USCCB to be sure that we are in compliance with those regulations.
All church personnel and volunteers working with children and vulnerable populations must complete Safe Environment Training in addition to a background/fingerprint clearance.
In an effort to ensure the safety of those persons under the care of the Diocese, all Church Personnel and volunteers, ages 15 and older, will be required to submit a completed Criminal Background Check Form as well as a complete set of fingerprints so as to facilitate a criminal background investigation.
