Model Policies: Praesidium Training & Modules
All members of our parishes and organizations are strongly encouraged to take the four modules of Safe Church, Safe Communities called Universal Training. Universal Training modules plus any combination of five other modules are required to be in certain roles or positions on parish staffs, as volunteers, or in parish or diocesan leadership.
Please understand the assignment of modules comes from The Episcopal Church's Task Force on the development of Model Policies and are distributed to all Episcopal Dioceses through the Safe Church, Safe Communities Office of The Episcopal Church.
Appendix A, though approved on March 31st, 2022 by Executive Council, is under review by the Safe Church Safe Communities Council of Advice for the Episcopal Church. Until this review is complete and a new Appendix has been created, please refer to the Invitation Templates for Learners which lists the modules necessary for roles and positions. Individuals must complete the minimum training requirements for their role or position. Parish and Organizations may require, based on context, that individuals complete additional Praesidium Safe Church, Safe Community modules.
