A tutorial on Safe Environment application
SEP database (restricted access)

The Diocese of Dallas administers the Safe Environment training classes, but those records are not directly shared with the SVdP Diocesan Council of Dallas. As a result, we have to take a few extra steps:

Fill out the Volunteer Release Form, to allow a background check to be conducted by SVdP. (You did this when you first joined.) There is another form for the same thing from the Diocese, and if you are doing SEP for the first time, you probably will need to fill out both forms and have two separate background checks. Complete the initial training (Family of Faith) in person, and annually complete another class either in person or online once a year. You can find the schedule and location for upcoming classes, and register to attend, here:

Also on this page, you can click "My Obligations" at the top of the page to see what classes you have already taken and how recently.

The SVdP Diocesan Council sends out reminders to individuals when their training needs to be renewed.

It is 17 minutes of fun. No preaching, no scripture, but very uplifting.
Sub plot: pride vs humility. Plot spoiler: humility wins.
