Safe Environment Certification Instructions (revised 5/2021)

** All volunteers age 15 and up must 1) Go through the Diocese of Orlando fingerprinting process and 2) complete the Diocese of Orlando Safe Environment Training--all of which can be done in Melbourne itself! The cost for fingerprinting is $44.00.

Thank you for your interest in becoming a diocesan volunteer! Please note the Safe Environment Certification process consists of 2 Steps:

 

Step 1: Safe Environment video and quiz

Step 2: Fingerprinting

Begin by visiting  https://www.orlandodiocese.org/safe-environment/english/.

When the video is complete, read the Diocesan Standards of Conduct and agree to terms.  Proceed to quiz.

Enter the Entity Code provided by Ascension: ___ 26 ___ _ Choose your role/applicant type: volunteer. Click "next" to take the 20 question quiz.

If you pass, you may immediately download your certificate. Results will also be emailed to your diocesan entity and to the office of Human Resources. 

Once the Safe Environment Certification quiz is complete, a Fieldprint code will appear specific to your entity. Please copy or write down this Fieldprint code as you will need to enter it in the next step. If you fail the quiz, you will be directed to Step 1. You cannot sign up for a fingerprint appointment until you have completed the Safe Environment video and passed the quiz.

 

1: Safe Environment Video and Quiz

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.

If you fail, you will be redirected to begin again at Step 1.
