Online Safe Ministry Training

Safe Ministry Training Online

Starting with Refresher in October 2017, all the Safe Ministry Training courses are moving online as the primary delivery method.

The content of the online courses is the same as the face to face versions and the time taken to complete the online training will be similar.

Safe  Ministry  Essentials  (up to 4.5  hours)  |  For  those  who  have  not  completed  any  training. (Available online early 2018)
Safe  Ministry  Refresher  (up to 2.5  hours)  |  For  those  who  need  to  refresh  their  training. Available online now!

Please  note:  Safe  Ministry  training  can  contain  content  that  may  cause  distress.  It  includes discussion  of  topics  such  as  child  abuse,  family  and  domestic  violence,  abuse  of  power  and bullying.
Please  contact  the Safe Ministry Team (PSU)  if  this  training  may  cause  concern.
Our training is endorsed by the Safe Churches Training Agreement (SCTA)

How does online training work?

Online training consists of self-paced modules and a live webinar. To complete this training you require a computer or other internet-connected device (e.g: a laptop, tablet or phone).

1. Register: Click the ‘Register now‘ link on this page to register and set up your online account.

2. Self-paced modules: Complete the self-paced online modules for your chosen course.

Once you have registered, you are taken to the online training website and automatically logged into Module One of your chosen course e.g. Refresher.
These self-paced modules allow you to complete the initial part of the training at your own pace and in your own time. You can come and go from the self-paced modules as you wish, taking as long as you need to complete the material. We recommend that you allow approximately 45 mins – 1 hour to complete each module – although if you are already familiar with some of the material, you may find you complete a module in a shorter time.

3. Live webinar: Complete the final module of your chosen course- a live and interactive webinar (duration- 45 mins).

The final module consists entirely of a live webinar (a seminar via the web). After completing all the self-paced online modules, you will be able to book into a webinar at a date and time of your choice.
The next scheduled webinars are listed below.
You do not need any special equipment to participate in the webinar, but we do not recommend using a smartphone for this module – the small screen makes it quite difficult to participate fully.


Safe Ministry Essentials $15 for Anglicans of any Diocese | $17 for Other Denominations  (Essentials Online available early 2018)
Safe Ministry Refresher $10 for Anglicans of any Diocese| $12 for Other Denominations
