How to Get Safe Environment Education Certified


Safe Environment Education (SEE) Certification Requirements

There are four components to Safe Environment Education Certification:

  • Attend an Archdiocese of Milwaukee Safe Environment Education training session (one time)
  • Read and acknowledge the Mandatory Reporting Responsibilities and Code of Ethical Standards Policy (one time)
  • New 2020/2021: Read and acknowledge the Social Media and Digital Communication Policy (one time)
  • Consent to and submit information for St. Mary to process a current background check (resubmitted every 5 years)

Once you have completed these 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. 



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 may receive updates from CMG as to where you are 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, complete the Code of Ethical Standards and Mandatory Reporting Policy Acknowledgment and/or the Social Media and Digital Communication Policy, click Sign-in to CMG Connect and login to your account to complete these steps.

  • If this is the first time you have accessed the account, your username will be the email you used to register for the Safe Environment Education training session. 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 appropriate module and follow the prompts.
