Child Protection Training

All volunteers and employees in the Archdiocese of Hartford who have any contact with children are required to complete the Diocesan Protection of Youth Training.

Mandatory Two-Part* Compliance Process:

Part one is completion of a packet of forms. Our office has the packet of forms available for pick up. Forms may be submitted prior to attending the Virtus training seminar.

Part two is attendance at a Virtus training seminar. Instructions are included in the packet as to how to find and sign up for a Virtus seminar. You should attend a Virtus seminar within 45 days of submitting your forms. You may attend any Virtus seminar in any of the locations within the Archdiocese. To find a training near you, visit and select “Registration” on the left-hand navigation.

*Both parts must be completed to be fully compliant.
