Online training is provided by The Church Pension Group on behalf of The Episcopal Church through Praesidium Academy. Praesidium Academy provides training in short, focused courses that can normally be completed in 30-45 minutes. Praesidium Academy is the updated platform for such training, replacing the Safeguarding modules through Armatus in previous years. These courses can be taken from any location where a high-speed Internet connection is available. Individual courses must be completed to receive credit for completion. One cannot stop mid-module and ‘save’ progress.
If you completed this training in the last few years through a parish that is not part of The Diocese of South Carolina, please contact the Diocesan Office (843.259.2016). It is possible that you may secure the certificate of completion from your prior parish or diocesan office to share for your records with this diocese. Please refer to the diocesan website for the required modules.
