Child Protection & Abuse Prevention Training
Texas state law requires the successful completion of sexual abuse and child molestation prevention training. This written test is approved by the Department of State Health Services and required for every adult attending a summer event or camp with minor children. This new law is in addition to the annual criminal background check and sex offender registration record check already required by any adult who will be accompanying children to a summer event or camp at TCU.
TCU provides a curriculum that offers a statewide uniform course that complies with the new mandated requirements; the curriculum addresses the following topics:
- Definitions and effects of sexual abuse and child molestation;
- Typical patterns of behavior and methods of operation of child molesters and sex offenders that put children at risk;
- Warning signs and symptoms associated with sexual abuse or child molestation;
- Recommended procedures by youth camps to address, prevent, and report suspected sexual abuse or child molestation;
- Ways adults can avoid putting themselves at risk for an accusation of sexual misconduct.
You can visit the Texas Department of State Health Services for the complete list of approved vendors that provide youth protection training. Both individuals and organizations can access the training program directly through our recommended program, Darkness to Light. Training does not have to be completed in one sitting. The fee is $10 per person and the certificate will include the required TDSHS provider code.
The successful completion of training and certificate of completion is required for all adults and must be completed before arrival. TCU may ask for certificates of completion, background screening, and adult registration forms prior to or at check-in. Any adult participating in a summer event or camp that cannot be documented and certified as successfully completing the State-mandated training will not be allowed to register or allowed on campus. TCU does not provide training.
