    Woah…. you want a massive caveat on this post. Most Anglican diocese, for example, have very specific requirements that have to be met to be in compliance with diocesan law. This is not an appropriate replacement for diocesan training unless it’s been formally accepted by a diocese. Got no formal training procedures? Then this is great! Got something in place? Don’t advertise this until it’s approved

    Hi there, yes – you’ll need to ensure that this service meets the requirements of your specific situation, but for many of the readers, this will be a very useful tool.

    There’s nothing wrong with letting people know about the site here.
    SafeMinistryTraining isn’t just for one denomination, and surely more than just Anglicans read this blog.
    Regardless, the website does say the first step is to check and confirm the program with your elders, board, committee, etc.

    This is a great resource, and beautifully executed – but as pointed out many church organisational units (Diocese’s etc) will have quite different training standards. Steve, it would be really helpful to have a caveat stating that at the top of the article. We at the Sydney Anglican Professional Standards Unit already field enough questions about yhis! 😉

    Thanks Neil, I’ve added a note to the post, reminding people to check the requirements for their region/denomination.
