TIMEFRAME & COST
How long am I Youth Certified for?
Upon meeting the guidelines, you will become Youth Certified for a period of three (3) years, valid from the date that you completed your RiS online training. After three (3) years your Youth Certified ID number and card will expire, and you will have to complete the training and checks again.
Is there a cost?
CRCs and initial VSCs are free-of-charge* for Gull Lake residents and volunteer coaches and activity leaders who have completed RiS online training.
*Additional costs may be incurred, at your expense, based on VSC results.
There is a $30 fee for RiS Online Training. Check to see if your organization or employer will reimburse you.
Apply for a pre-registration code on this grant.
How long will the process take?
The process can vary, but generally.
Respect in Sport (RiS) training takes 2.5 hours…you can do it in one sitting or over time.
The RCMP processes CRCs and VSCs in a timely fashion.
The Youth Certified Application Form can be filled out in a matter of minutes when submitting your RiS Certificate and satisfactory CRC and VSC to the RCMP.
If all documents are satisfactory (completed RiS certificate, Application Form, clean CRC and VSC), the application processing time is instant.
If background checks come back with positive or incomplete results, delays may vary. In some cases, you may be asked to provide fingerprints to the RCMP to complete your VSC; however, this is not uncommon and is not something to worry about.
If an unsatisfactory CRC is returned, a review process may be initiated and can take two (2) – four (4) weeks to determine if you are eligible to become Youth Certified.
