Print this page

All clergy, staff, and volunteers who previously participated in the VIRTUS® Protecting God's Children for Adults program are required to be VIRTUS® recertified every four years. Recertification takes place on or before the expiration date of the last certificate.

Recertification options include:

  • Attending the one-and-a-half-hour VIRTUS® Keeping the Promise Alive recertification program

  • Repeating the three-hour VIRTUS® Protecting God's Children for Adults program

  • Qualifying for an Option #3 Recertification by reading 48 VIRTUS® online bulletins over the four-year period

To fulfill the recertification requirement, all part-time coaches who have coached in CIF-sanctioned programs for three or more years and who have no other assignment in the archdiocese, as well as all Catholic Youth Organization​ coaches who have coached for three or more years and who have not previously been trained​ in the VIRTUS® program must complete the three-hour VIRTUS® Protecting God's Children for Adults program for recertification. This recertification must be completed prior to the end of the four-year period after their Play Like a Champion Today certification.
