Defensive Driving – Online Training

The Catholic Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston and Catholic Mutual, its insurance carrier, are requiring all employees and volunteers of the Diocese, Catholic Charities WV, Diocesan Parishes and Schools to take the Online Training – Defensive Driving Course, “Be Smart – Drive Safe”.

“Be Smart – Drive Safe” is a condensed 18 minute online defensive driving course. This informative course will provide useful information to become a better defensive driver. “Be Smart – Drive Safe” is available at NO COST and can be easily accessed and viewed when it is most convenient to you.

By taking this course employees and volunteers become better defensive drivers and can possibly be eligible for a reduction in their personal insurance rates.

Upon completion of “Be Smart – Drive Safe” you will be asked a series of driving related questions. The screening questions will be reviewed by Catholic Mutual. In cases where answers indicate a potential problem driver, you will not be allowed to drive on Diocesan, CCWV, Parish or School related business. This is for our protection and yours. Answering the questions in an untruthful manner may result in disciplinary action.

If there are any questions concerning the required course, please contact Kevin Maloney, CRM, or Alex J. Nagem, CPA CGMA Comptroller,
