Mandatory Child Protection Training for all parish volunteers
The Archdiocese of Santa Fe has recently changed the policy for training regarding the Abuse Awareness Training. Participation in the training program is required for all volunteers whether or not their ministry involves contact with children. They are expected to participate in the Archdiocese training before volunteering. Training must be repeated every 5 years. Please note that if you do not attend this training or complete the training online you cannot be an active volunteer at San Isidro Church. Please call the office at 505-471-0710 or if you have any questions.
To complete the training on-line, go to the Archdiocese website at www.archdiosf.org
On the left side of the page you will see different categories….scroll down to children and youth prevention….under that heading you will see Virtus and Virtus in Spanish
Click on the one that you want to take the training in and that link will take you directly into the training.
You will create a user name and id.
You will submit information to run your background and you will electronically sign the Virtus Code of Conduct.
You cannot use a phone or ipad, it must be a computer. It is preferred that you use a home computer, because you are running your background you want to use a computer that is safe.
At the end there is a printable certificate.
If there are any problems call the Virtus help desk at 1-888-847-8870.
