Safe Environment Training
The Diocese of Orlando is required by the United States Catholic Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) to follow certain guidelines with regard to Safe Environment Training. As are all other archdioceses and dioceses, we are required to undergo regular audits by the USCCB to be sure that we are in compliance with those regulations.
All church personnel and volunteers working with children and vulnerable populations must complete Safe Environment Training in addition to a background/fingerprint clearance.
In an effort to ensure the safety of those persons under the care of the Diocese, all Church Personnel and volunteers, ages 15 and older, will be required to submit a completed Criminal Background Check Form as well as a complete set of fingerprints so as to facilitate a criminal background investigation.
Volunteer registration is a two-step process which includes completing Diocesan provided Safe Environment training and registration of fingerprints. To complete the registration process, you will link to the Diocese of Orlando Fingerprinting and safe environment training page at the link below.
However, in addition to your personal information, you will be asked to provide the following parish specific information:
Fieldprint Code: FPSStMatthewChVol
Name of Previously Qualified Entity: St. Matthew Catholic Church
Address of Previously Qualified Entity: Overlook Drive
Year of Request: Year if known, otherwise enter 2010
It is helpful to complete the Safe Environment training first which includes a 20 minute online video, and a 13 question quiz.
After successfully completing the online quiz, register and schedule fingerprinting and a background check.
