Safe Church Training Update - I have been working dilligently with the Diocese and individuals to get you working Praesidium training links, it's become apparent there are still some issues and confusion around the new system.
In terms of modules to take - if you are a voluneer depending on which catergory of volunteer you are you will need to take the following modules:
Volunteers: liturgical (verger, sexton, servers, crucifers, intercessors, administrants, altar guild, etc.)
Volunteers: pastoral & refugee workers
Safety Volunteers: children and youth workers; camp leaders
Volunteers: envelope secretary, counters, greeters and sidespeople.
Volunteers: social media assistant, social media coordinator and videographer.
This information can be found at the diocesan website at: https://www.bc.anglican.ca/resources/safe-church--211/pages/safe-church-modules-praesidium
Please continue to watch your email for correspondence either from the Diocese or directly from Praesidium, the organization administering the online training. The training includes important information for everyone volunteering in an organization such as ours. There is an American focus to some of the legal information, but generally the modules are pertinent and pretty straight forward to work through. If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to Heather or email her at email@example.com or Andrew our Office Manager firstname.lastname@example.org.
For criminal record checks information please refer to the diocesan website here: https://www.bc.anglican.ca/resources/safe-church--211/pages/crcs-versus-pics for more information about obtaining one. All volunteers need to have a valid CRC on file. Again please contact either Heather or Andrew if you have any questions!
A huge thank you to everyone that has helped take part to get St Duntan's up to date so far!
