How often does this training need to be renewed?
Safeguarding God’s People training is required by the Episcopal Church every five years. In 2019 California initiated a form of sexual harassment training which will be required biannually effective December 31, 2020. Praesidium, who manages our Safeguarding God’s People curriculum, has developed a training tool that complies with the California state employment law to assist with compliance of this new requirement. While the California requirement is biannual, the church still requires the Safeguarding God’s People training be renewed every five years. We encourage all our churches to have their employees and volunteers complete the new sexual harassment training by December 31, 2019. Once you have completed the training you are asked to notify your congregation administrator who will then notify the Diocesan Registrar, Alyson Terry.
If you are unsure about your renewal date, please contact Registrar Alyson Terry, 619-481-5455. We are pleased to offer this important training online at no cost.
