EIM Compliance

What is EIM?

For the safety and protection of our students, and as required by the Diocese of Austin, all Catholic school volunteers and employees must receive Ethics and Integrity in Ministry (EIM) certification every three years.
If you have not yet taken this course and would like to volunteer on campus, we invite you to attend an upcoming session. Please note, this is a 3 hour course so plan accordingly. To ensure participants receive the training in its entirety, late arrivals are not admitted, and all 3 hours must be completed in order to obtain your certification.

What does it mean to be compliant?

  1. You have had 1 initial “live” training within 3 years: After this initial “live” training, you complete an online refresher every three years;
  2. You have consented to a background check every three years;
  3. You have answered and signed off on the documents within the VIRTUS website.
Please contact Coni Butler, Director of Finance and Human Resources or the Diocese of Austin EIM Office if you have any questions about these requirements.
