Commit to Kids Online Training

Commit to Kids (C2K) is a program of the Canadian Centre for Child Protection. It is a step-by-step program that helps child-serving organizations create safe environments for the kids in their care. C2K gives organizations the tools to create policies, procedures and employee codes of conduct to reduce the risk of child sexual abuse and create safe environments for children and youth in their care.

The C2K online training course is part of the C2K program and is designed for individuals who are working with children, either through employment or on a volunteer basis. It is recommended that individuals who take the training have a copy of the full C2K program available to reference to obtain the full benefit of the training.

Users can view the training course at their own pace to learn about:

  • child sexual abuse
  • the grooming process
  • how to handle disclosures of child sexual abuse
  • the impact of child sexual abuse
  • how to create a Child Protection Code of Conduct for your organization
  • policies and procedures to use to protect children in your organization
  • the Canadian Centre for Child Protection’s Commit to Kids child sexual abuse prevention program for child-serving organizations

How does the training work?

  1. The training is delivered through a 2 hour online training course divided into 8 separate modules.
  2. The training course can be completed in one or multiple sittings from a computer, tablet or smartphone with access to the Internet*.
  3. Once all 8 modules are completed, a multiple choice knowledge validation test is administered to confirm proof of active participation.
  4. A certificate of completion is made available for download immediately once the user has successfully completed the knowledge validation test.
