Safe Church Training  

June 28, 2021

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Users of the Armatus system may receive an email from the new Safe Church system on July 14th asking you to log in and set up a new account.  Please feel free to ignore/delete this message ~ no response or registration is required at this time. 

Changes are coming! Armatus, the online Safe Church training system ("Part A") that the diocese has been using for the past few years, is migrating to Praesidium Academy. We want to make sure that this new system is easy for learners and the courses are useful. 

In order to accomplish these improvements, access to Safe Church "Part A " online courses will be suspended until September. If you need to reprint your certificate, please do so by logging in here http://www.safeguardingonline.org before the system shuts down in two weeks. If you have forgotten your username and password, please utilize the "Forgot username or password?" process on the screen.

Training for "Part B" of diocesan Safe Church requirements is still available and you are encouraged to complete the State of Maine Online Mandated Reporting Course. Find instructions here.   

Please be patient as we work hard on our end to improve administration and stay tuned for further announcements. If you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to be in touch with Barbara Martin, Canon for Administration.
