Safe Environment Training

Safe Environment Training for All Volunteers
Is your family new to OLG this year? Do you plan to volunteer on field trips or in the classroom? Tutor or coach/volunteer CYO?  Then you will need to sign-up for the Safe Environment / VIRTUS program required by the Archdiocese of Seattle for all volunteers working with children.
Training must be completed before you volunteer with children present.


What is VIRTUS?
VIRTUS includes online training as well as tracking for Safe Environment compliance.  VIRTUS provides a convenient way for participants to register, read and sign Safe Environment policies online, fill out information for a criminal background check and register for a Safe Environment class.  More about VIRTUS


How do I register for a class?
For a class list and to register for Protecting God’s Children training, log in (or click First-Time Registrant) on the VIRTUS website.  Click on the Training tab, then Live Training, Pre-register for an upcoming live training to find classes in the area At this time all classes are via Zoom.


How will I know if I need to update my training?
You will be notified by VIRTUS when it is time to renew your background check and/or take an online refresher course, which is required every three years.  You can also log in to VIRTUS to see if additional training is required.


Thank you for your commitment to keeping our parishes and schools safe and healthy for our children, youth and vulnerable adults.
