The problem isn't going through some safety program. The problem is doing it over and over again for each group you're involved in. Why can't they share results? I've done various child protection packages for refereeing robotics cub scouts (a while back, my boys are over 30 now - that one certainly wasn't online!) church, if I was going to be a volunteer for youth programs - I've dodged that one for a while now Seems like there was one more, but I can't remember it now. And not only do you have to go through their training and paperwork, you usually have to get recommendations from a non-family member as well. I dislike bothering my friends with it over and over again.
