At the Archdiocese of Omaha, we want the best for our children. That’s why all of our priests, deacons, staff and volunteers attend our Safe Environment training – a program designed to help them become even more aware and responsible leaders while fostering a secure, joy-filled atmosphere for our children.
Trainers, individual parishes, deaneries, or schools may schedule training sessions that are open to the public. Take a look at the training schedule below. Sessions run approximately two-and-a-half hours and to receive your certification, you must attend the entire session. Safe Environment Certification includes a background check and is valid for five years.
Please register online prior to the training. The training is free to all individuals employed or volunteering in the Archdiocese of Omaha.

New training dates are continuously being added. Please check back if the dates above do not work for you.
If your certification is nearing expiration or your certification has lapsed less than a year, you can conveniently get recertified. This online recertification program certifies you for another five years. There is a one-year grace period from the expiration date during which you may be recertified using this shortened, video recertification process. After the one-year grace period, you must start the certification training over from the beginning.
