Sydney Anglican Diocese Training
This training has been written for leaders serving in Anglican churches in the Sydney Diocese. It is important to note that any reference to policies, ordinances, codes of conduct and certain leadership roles as well as government legislation and legal requirements are specific to these Anglican churches.
Leaders from other churches may also benefit from, and are welcome to undertake this training. While much of the information and guidelines contained in the courses will be relevant in other churches, leaders who are not in a Sydney Anglican church should ensure they identify their own church/denomination’s applicable policies, codes and leadership roles as well as specific state laws at the relevant points in the training.

How does online training work?
Online training consists of self-paced topics and a live webinar (seminar via the web). To complete your online course you require a computer or other internet-connected device (e.g: a laptop or a tablet).
This training format is a convenient way to complete safe ministry training, but it may not suit everyone and it is not instant.
If you do not complete the whole course (self-paced topics, the live webinar and the post-webinar topic) within your enrolment period, you will need to re-enrol and re-start your training.
Click on the headings below to understand the difference between your Course enrolment period and Training expiry date.
Your course enrolment period is the length of time you have access to your online course. This date is displayed in your account under Enrolment Expiry.
Your course enrolment period does not affect your safe ministry accreditation period, it only indicates when access to your online course will cease.
Your training expiry date is when your safe ministry accreditation is no longer valid. This will be 3yrs from the date you last attended training, i.e., 3yrs from the date on your certificate (these details can also be found on My Dashboard in your safe ministry account).
Please refer to the information below to understand how the online training process works.
A webinar is a seminar via the web. This is a live and interactive component of your online course, therefore numbers are limited in each session.
For your planning, the upcoming webinar dates are listed below (we are unable to indicate the spaces available in each session on this page). You will be able to register for a webinar after you have completed the self-paced topics in your online Essentials or Refresher course, so don’t delay in beginning your course after you enrol.
We recommend you complete the self-paced topics within 2-3 weeks to make your training more meaningful.
