Verified Volunteers is replacing Shield the Vulnerable as the NAD's provider of online training and screening for all staff and volunteers working with children.

The two providers are similar. Upon registering with Verified Volunteers, there will be an online course lasting 40-60 minutes. This can be done all at once or you may save at any time and continue later. At the end of the course you will be allowed to enter your personal information and complete the screening portion. All training must be completed no more than one month after registering. 

As in the past, the training and background screening will be valid for three years from the date both were completed. The new system will provide reminders when the training and screening need to be renewed. 
Maintaining a safe environment for our children continues to be a priority for the Iowa-Missouri Conference. We appreciate your patience as we make this transition. If you have any questions regarding this program, please contact the conference office.

  • If you previously registered with Shield the Vulnurable and your training and background check are still valid, no action is required at this time. 
  • If you previously registered with Shield the Vulnerable and it's time to retrain and rescreen, complete your registration.
  • If you are unsure of your status, please contact the conference office.
  • New applicants: complete your registration.
