Catholic Mutual Group Courses
Our training vendor, Catholic Mutual Group, has developed courses to educate both adults and young people in ways to protect the most vulnerable members of society – our children.
These online courses are meant to supplement, not replace, the mandatory Diocese of St. Petersburg Safe Environment Program training for adults who wish to have unsupervsed access to children and youth. These online courses also act as additional resources that supplement the Safe Environment Program training offered to students in our Catholic Schools and the diocese’s Evangelization and Life Long Formation (religious education) instruction provided in our parishes.
The adult online training courses provide parents and caring adults with a good baseline of education on such subjects as Child Abuse & Neglect, Detecting Predators, Grooming Techniques, Bullying, Cyberspace Risks and Solutions, Reporting Guidelines and Cyber Bullying.
Our online training courses for students in grades 4-12 offer education on bullying, being safe and staying safe, dating abuse, and Cybersafety .
