This resourceincludes two videos: one for church leadership and clergy and a companion video for ministry staff. Each participant will also receive Insurance Board’s COVID-19 TOOLKIT. The training video bundle is available to Insurance Board policyholders at no cost; each ministry insured by IB, will have access to 25 licenses. Ministries not insured by Insurance Board that are within denominations we serve, will have access to the training at a discounted rate of $2.50 per license. And all other ministries are welcome to take advantage of the training at the cost of $5.00 per license. 10% of the proceeds for member pricing will be donated to their denomination. For more information and the discount codes, visit our dedicated page https://www.insuranceboard.org/reopening-during-covid-19-considerations/
In addition to partnering with denominational leaders and legal experts, the Insurance Board has collaborated with myCEcourse for access to the training platform that not only helps church administers with assigning the training to their leaders and staff, but also gives them the ability to track progress and generates downloadable PDF Certificate of Completion for individuals that complete the training. In many states it is required to provide COVID-19 training to church leadership, staff and volunteers prior to reopening. By participating in this training, ministries may minimize their legal burden, but more importantly they are providing a safe place to work and worship.
