Child Protection Training

A campus program for minors is defined by applying the three (3) question rule:
  • Is it a program sponsored and controlled by a University college, school, unit, or department?
  • Are there minors in the program?
  • Are parents/guardians not expected to be responsible for their children during the program? UTRGV assumes the custodial care of the child.

Instructions to complete the UTRGV Child Protection Training:

  • Log on to myUTRGV.  https://my.utrgv.edu/home
  • Click on the Blackboard icon.
  • Select the organization Student Educational Outreach
  • View the presentation entitled Child Protection Presentation.
  • Take the corresponding Child Protection Training Exam until you have earned an 80% or better.
  • In person, training is offered for large groups on a limited basis.

All staff that is participating in a youth program is required to complete training prior to contact with youth. The youth program would be considered out of compliance if training is not completed as required.
