Safe Environment Training

The Diocese of Phoenix requires that all employees and volunteers, at all facilities, achieve and maintain current Safe Environment training certification and pass a background check before participating in any ministry.

Effective July 1, 2019, a new process for certification began through Catholic Mutual Group.

If you have been serving for the last few years, your information and class history should follow you to the new database, therefore you will not need to create a new account.

If you are new, or if this is your first time serving for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix, you will have to create and complete a new profile and complete the Safe Environment Application. You will also be required to sign up for a LIVE Initial/Foundation Training for Safe Environment.

All volunteers are required to complete the state and federal criminal background check (a third-party company called will be processing the background check and quarterly checks).
