Per our agreement with our Chartered Organization, the Knights of Columbus in conjunction with SJN, all adult leaders serving in the capacity of Scoutmaster, Assistance Scoutmaster, Troop Committee Member and Merit Badge Counselor are required to obtain and maintain their Ethics and Integrity in Ministry (EIM) certification through the Diocese of Austin. To remain compliant, one must attend an EIM “refresher” workshop every three years. Someone within the troop will contact you to let you know that your certification will expire and request that you take action on maintaining your certification.
To sign up for an EIM class, you will need to login into your EIM account in order to find the schedule of EIM workshops and to sign up: https://www.eappsdb.com/Login.asp?ORGZ_KEY=4.
If you don’t have an EIM account, you will need to register and create a user ID/Password: https://www.eappsdb.com/Registration.asp?ORGZ_KEY=4&PAGE=REG_PAGE&ORIGIN=OUTSIDE
Once you have completed your classes and received your certificate of completion, please submit a copy of the certificate to the Troop Committee.
