Employees and volunteers of the Archdiocese of Atlanta must renew their safe environment certification every 5 years. A VIRTUS Training Class has been scheduled at All Saints in the Social Hall on Thursday, August 22, 9:30am to 12:30pm.
Participants must attend the entire 3 hour class to receive credit. No late arrivals. If you arrive late, once the first video is playing, you will not receive credit for the session and must register for another session. No one under 18 years of age permitted. Childcare is NOT provided.
The Archdiocese of Atlanta is committed to the safety and well-being of its children and vulnerable adults and implements procedures to minimize risk and barriers to build and foster a culture of a safe environment. Requiring clergy, employees, and volunteers working with children and/or vulnerable individuals to attend the VIRTUS Protecting God’s Children training is part of a comprehensive Safe Environment training package.
