We provide individuals, congregations, presbyteries, organisations, and committees with the best possible training, support, advice and resources in relation to safe ministry and abuse matters.


Basic training is to be completed before a person commences in a position of authority and is applicable to ministers, elders, ministry leaders and Bible study leaders, as well as those working with children or young people. Once completed, the full basic training course is to be completed again every three years.

The Online Training has been designed to leverage off the existing training workbook and approach.  Like the training workbook the online modules have been designed to be done either in a group or as an individual.  We continue to encourage church based groups training together as we find that people learn safe ministry best by discussing together.  However, we know that this is not always possible and so hope that these online modules will be effective for individual training as well. 

Please note that BTS Online training is primarily for leaders in NSW, ACT, WA or Tasmania, or those working with national ministry organisations such as APWM and PIM.
Leaders from other states should refer to their own safe ministry unit for training requirements – Victoria, Queensland, SA and NT.
