Adventist Screening Verification

All conference and locally funded employees, and any volunteers who work in any capacity with children or church/school money, are required to be trained and to complete a background check through Adventist Screening Verification.


Adventist Screening Verification process in partnership with the North American Division of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church and Sterling Volunteers as the new web-based platform. The online program features a training and screening system for both employees and volunteers across all conferences in the division.

If you trained and completed the background check through Shield the Vulnerable (STV) prior to January 1, 2017, you will not have to retrain until your certification with STV has expired (3 years from the date completed).  If you have a question about your expiration date or need assistance with training, please contact the HR department of the Carolina Conference.  All employees and volunteers who began working or volunteering after December 12, 2016, will need to complete the training and background check.
