    Effective January 1, 2019, the VIRTUS training has been replaced with the new Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston Safe Environment Online Program, SAFE HAVEN: It's Up to You. The online training consists of a 3-part video series and will include a criminal background check. There will no longer be in classroom instruction; all training will be online (First, Refresher and all future trainings).

    These online trainings are available in English and Spanish. The VIRTUS database will no longer be accessible.
