All program leaders, program staff and volunteers who will be working with minors in a program or activity must complete required online training.  This training course generally takes 45 minutes to complete.  No Miami University faculty, staff, administrator, student or volunteer may work with a minor in a program or activity until they have completed the online education.

For University Programs and Student Organization/Club Sport Programs- required training is provided through the EduRisk Learning Portal.  

For Non-University Programs- quality, targeted training available at no additional cost is available to groups hosting events at Miami through the EduRisk Learning Portal to supplement a program's individualized training.  However, if you have other training in place that addresses the topic of protecting children from sexual misconduct and reporting then our training through EduRisk is not required.

For all programs, follow the instructions below to self-enroll and begin the training.
