Safe Environment Training for Parents & Church Workers
Before any adult works with minors in the Diocese of Fargo, they must complete the Safe Environment Training for Church Workers. The following information must be on file for each employee or volunteer who will have contact with minors:

- Acknowledgement that the Circle of Care video has been viewed and discussed Acknowledgement Form (PDF).
- A copy of the “Authorization for Background Check” form (PDF).
- “Notice of Eligibility” from the Diocese of Fargo.
A church worker cannot begin work with minors until all these forms are on file. Talk to your pastor or contact Human Resources for more information. Forms are available on the Human Resources page.
