Are school teachers exempt from doing Safe Ministry training as they do equivalent training about vulnerable people for their workplace?

The Parish Administration Ordinance requires all people working with children (under 18 year olds) to complete our Safe Ministry Training (or an equivalent course under the Safe Churches Training Agreement).

Because courses related to other professions are all structured differently, and do not teach from a gospel perspective or cover the church environment, we cannot accept that training. However, with Safe Ministry Training becomes available online, people with such profession-based training will be able to fast-forward through sections of material that they have already covered (eg: signs of abuse).
