Plan Ahead--Complete Your Volunteer Certification Requirements Now!

Please view this post for more information about the requirements.

All adult volunteers who work with children are required to fully comply with Diocesan child protection requirements.  This includes volunteers in school, sports, and CCF & Youth Ministry.  The volunteer certification process is much more than just taking a Virtus training class! 

The 3-step certification process includes the following:

  1. Complete this OLGC form so we can track the progress of your background check:
  2. Complete the Office of Child Protection background check questionnaire:
  3. Once you have completed the questionnaire in Step 2, register for and attend the in-person, 4-hour VIRTUS training session (Protecting God's Children for Adults) at a Catholic parish in Northern Virginia.  Register at and choose Arlington Diocese.  Follow the directions given.
