Safeguarding Online Training

We recommend that each church in the diocese appoint a designated administrator for the online Safeguarding training. Once you designate an administrator, the Assistant for Finance and Diocesan Life, Kelly Stephenson ( or 828-225-6656 x 1000), is available to walk your administrator through the online system. Your administrator will then be able to enroll other members of your parish. All members will be given a user name and password by their administrator.
