Safeguarding Online is online training 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. The training is provided at no cost to participants.
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.
If your training is not up to date and you would like to enroll in online training, click here for further instructions.
Abuse prevention training offered
Darkness to Light's "Stewards of Children" training program for prevention of child sexual abuse is offered periodically for all employees and volunteers in the diocese who work with children or youth. This training is an integral part of our mission to protect the children in our care, so if you have not taken a D2L course or similar training recently, please plan to attend the next three-hour session. To find out when the next opportunity for D2L training will be offered, contact Julie Walters at Grace, firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also visit the Darkness to Light website, www.d2l.org.
