What is VIRTUS Online™?

VIRTUS Online™ is the brand name that identifies a state-of-the-art, web-based platform that provides best practice resources 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our system provides a comprehensive menu of functions for churches, religious organizations, and facilities from one convenient web-based resource. Through these functions we can help church organizations prevent wrongdoing, manage risk and improve service to community through education, training, and best practices. The home page (the page you are now viewing) is provided free of charge to anyone in the world with access to the Internet. The subscriber pages (pages requesting a user name and a password) are intended for users from organizations that subscribe to the VIRTUS® programs.

VIRTUS Online Supports Ongoing Training

Most training programs (seminars, instructor-led sessions, videos) establish awareness, but few change behavior. With the VIRTUS programs, the potential for successful behavioral change can be increased via our VIRTUS Online system. Every training program, in addition to instructor-led and video awareness sessions, provides ongoing web-based training. These regularly scheduled online bulletins and web-based training courses reinforce the knowledge points made during the awareness sessions. Moreover, every training program is tracked so the organization knows who has or has not trained. Plus, most of the online training bulletins and modules are interactive allowing trainees to contact and interact with a trainer.
