What is VIRTUS and why do I need it? VIRTUS or other Child Protection training programs are an important training necessary for all who work with young people and required for all who apply to the MMA Adult Track. You will be asked to provide documentation that certifies that you have completed this training, when you fill out the application, so contact your Parish to obtain a copy of this certificate. Even if you have attended MMA in the past, you will need to provide this documentation. Scan it as a PDF or have it as a DOC file ready for upload when you begin. Please label the file as follows: Last Name, First Initial. VIRTUS.
