Awareness Training

Completion of the Adsafe Awareness Training is one of the essential elements required for those in child-related or governance roles in the local Church. The Training is designed to strengthen awareness and build the knowledge, skills and capacity of our churches to safeguard children and the vulnerable.

Currently our Training is available for everyone serving in child-related or governance roles within Seventh-day Adventist church entities across Australia and New Zealand.

Where to access the Awareness Training

There are three options for accessing the Awareness Training:

  1. Complete the 'Safer Churches Awareness Training' module using the online training portal
  2. Attend a Zoom training session delivered live by an Adsafe trainer
  3. Attend training delivered face-to-face by the Adsafe team at a special event, for example a conference Big Camp

All training options are suitable for persons completing training for the first time or renewing their previous training. Awareness Training is valid for 3 years.

The Awareness Training is available online in a self-paced training module ('Safer Churches Awareness Training') and can be accessed 24/7 online
