Safe Environment

Creating a Culture of Protection & Healing

Safe Environment training is a requirement that has been in place for many years.  All employees and volunteers of the Diocese of Tucson are required to take this training every three years. The Diocese of Tucson has recently partnered with Catholic Mutual Group (CMG) to ensure that our Safe Environment Program (SEP) is consistent throughout the Diocese, of high quality, and relative to today’s environment.  This new CMG program includes Safe Environment Program training, Criminal History Background Check, and ends with an updated and signed Affirmation. The complete program is done online.    

You can complete this program at any time of the day that is convenient for you.  It will take you about 1 ½ hours to complete.  The cost for the system, training modules and background checks will be covered by PPIT (Pooled Parish Insurance Trust).  This means there is no cost to you as the participant or to your Parish for any of the services provided by CMG.
