Safe Environment Certification


All adults MUST be SAFE ENVIRONMENT CERTIFIED before involved with our parish children in the school, religious formation, youth ministry programs or sports athletics. For initial training, (first time only) you will attend a 2-hour presentation on important and educational information. Prior to that session you will sign up through the Catholic Mutual Group at www.cmgconnect.org to register. During this signup process you will be asked to set up an account and secure a password. Once that has been completed you will be guided through the curriculum and through the necessary sections which will also include a background check. You may attend Safe Environment certification training anywhere within the Archdiocese. Please see their website www.archomaha.com Safe Environment for dates and locations. Registration is included there.



NEED TO BE RECERTIFIED


ONLINE Recertification is located at www.cmgconnect.org

Select the Omaha Diocese from the first screen. You will need to set up an account with a password if you have not done so previously. This training will take approximately one hour to complete. You will then be recertified for 5 years. You will no longer be issued a Safe Environmnet card, your record of completion will be kept in the parish records. If you have questions or concerns please contact Kay Buhrman , at the parish office. 402-496-7988, ext. 239 or email buhrmank@svdpomaha.org for assistance.
