How to Get Safe Environment Education Certified


Safe Environment Education (SEE) Certification Requirements

There are three components to Safe Environment Education Certification:

  • Attend a live training session (one time)
  • Read and acknowledge the Mandatory Reporting Responsibilities and Code of Ethical Standards documentation (one time)
  • Consent to and submit information for St. Mary to process a current background check (resubmitted every 5 years)

Once you have completed all three steps, notify the staff member you are working with to submit your name for verification.

For accurate auditing and verification of a current background check, certification is reviewed annually and approved effective from July 1 of the current year through June 30 of the following year. 

You are not certified for the current year until you have received notification from St. Mary personnel. 


Effective April 17, 2017: All Requirements are Managed and Maintained Online

Whether you are a first time volunteer/employee or you have been previously certified and only need to update a background check, you will need to access the online account managed and maintained through CMG Connect, the provider for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.


Are You a New Volunteer/Employee?

If you are a new volunteer/employee, you will need to create a CMG Account and follow the prompts. To create an account, click Get Certified. You will be redirected to the Archdiocese of Milwaukee Safe Environment page. Read through information, download their provided instructions, and click register. You will receive updates from CMG as to where you are at in the certification process through the email you provide. Final confirmation of certification is provided by St. Mary personnel, only.


Have You Previously Completed the Live Training Component?

If you have been instructed to access your CMG Account to consent to and submit information for a background check and/or complete the Code of Ethical Standards and Mandatory Reporting Acknowledgement, click Sign-in to CMG Connect and log in to your account to complete these steps.

  • If this is the first time you have accessed the account, your user name will be the email you used to register for live training (perhaps with a .mil at the end). The password will also be something you have previously selected.
  • If you still have access to the email but can't recall your password, follow the prompts to reset your password.
  • If you are having trouble accessing your account, contact the Safe Environment Coordinator for assistance.
  • Once logged in, scroll down the page to "2. Five Year Background Check & Code of Ethics Renewal - Safe Environment - Milwaukee" and follow the prompts.

You will receive updates from CMG as to where you are at in the certification process through the email you provide. Final confirmation of certification is provided by St. Mary personnel, only.
