Please Note: On August 1, 2016, the Diocese of Austin will begin using a new education program for our EIM workshop, which will replace our current Basic/Refresher workshop format. The new program is a significant update of current training programs and we believe it is important for all persons that are required to be EIM compliant to participate in this program and receive this updated information. Consequently, all clergy, religious,seminarians and employees, and all volunteers serving in ministry to minors or the vulnerable, will attend this new program when they are next due for a workshop. Additionally, anyone new to the Diocese of Austin, wishing to serve in ministry here, must attend this new EIM workshop in order to be compliant with diocesan EIM policies. Verification of safe environment training from a previous diocese no longer serves as training in the Diocese of Austin. Please contact the EIM Office at
firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
