Facilitator Procedures - 2022

Reminder that all active facilitators must use V 4.0 of the program - if you need materials, send an email to

As was said in the mandatory update, bring lots of extra blank certificates and a blank sign in sheet, as well as the walk-in sheet I handed out (link below).

Certificate and walk in sheet blanks are found in the Facilitator Tab under Download Resources.  Remember these are only for Walk-ins!  Everyone gets a certificate, but you need to print the certificates and sign in sheets from Virtus for the pre-registered enrollees.

Keeping the Promise Alive is for recertification only.  It lasts 90 minutes and is good for five years.  Until a 4.0 version comes out, you are to teach the second half of a PGC 4.0 session.

Instructions for logging onto Virtus to take Protecting God's Children for the first time

Those attending for the second time need to work with the Local Safe Environment Coordinator or contact
