Safe Environment

Fingerprinting and Safe Environment clearance must be completed before the start of volunteer work.  The first step to securing your clearance is to download the Diocesan application found at the bottom of this page.  Once completed, return this application to our Front Office, and we will submit it to the Diocesan database.
 
FINGERPRINTING
Once the Diocese of Orange has accepted your application, we will provide you with a Live Scan Fingerprinting form.  This form, along with a photo ID, may be taken to any Certifix location.  Find the location nearest you by visiting www.certifixlivescan.com
 
The fee is $47-$57.  Please contact the location directly for acceptable forms of payment.  The Certifix agent will provide you with a copy of your Life Scan form to return to the school.  
 
SAFE ENVIRONMENT
All volunteers are required to take the online course Safe Haven- It's Up to You.  Instructions for accessing the course are below.

2. Check “Safe Environment Training” for your participation category.
3. The required curriculum is Safe Haven- It’s Up to You. You may start and stop the course as needed until completion.
4. At the end of the curriculum, please return to your dashboard to print out the certificate and bring it in to the Front Office, or email a copy to Mrs. Ramos.

Important: If you do not see the course Safe Haven- It’s Up to You, then please go to edit your profile and make sure that the box marked “Safe Environment Training” is checked.
