(Abuse prevention training required by the diocese)
Online training is provided through the Church Pension Group. Safeguarding Online provides training in short, focused courses that can normally be completed in 30-45 minutes. These courses can be taken from any location where a high-speed Internet connection is available.
If you completed this training in the last few years through a parish that is not part of The Episcopal Church in South Carolina, please contact Lauren Kinard in the Diocesan Office (843.259-2016). We will be able to access your information through CPG and update your diocesan records accordingly.
