Certification Guide for Church Leaders and Volunteers


CMC believes that a child or young person should never experience abuse of any kind. We have a responsibility to promote the welfare of all children and young people and to keep them safe. We are committed to practice in a way that protects them.


This GUIDE provides a quick reference to the certifications needed for each ministry at CMC. It applies to all staff, including senior leadership, manager, coordinators, paid staff, volunteers, students or anyone working on behalf of CMC.

Each person-in-charge of their ministries should make sure their team members acquire the relevant certification before commencing their service.

This is essential to ensure our church is compliant with various legislations for child protection in Australia.
