CERTIFICATION FOR QUALIFIED
CHAPLAINS EDUCATED
ELSEWHERE

We offer the option for qualified chaplains to
become
Certified Professional Chaplains.

Our chaplain certification may be obtained by
persons who received their education from an
outside school or agency.

Our Certification is for Life:  Many
credentialing agencies certify people for one
year at a time, requiring annual payments
year after year.  Because our certification is
life-long, we must take basic appropriate
steps to gain a picture of applicants'
background.

The conditions are:

  • We need a copy of a current resume.
  • You must submit at least three
    references, two of which must be
    professional in nature.  (Email is fine.)
  • You must provide us with a written
    description of the education that you
    believe qualifies you for Certification.
  • We ask that you present a copy of any
    graduation or diploma documents that
    you feel would be helpful to our
    committee members as they consider
    your application. (Email attachment is
    acceptable.)
  • Applicants should write a short essay
    describing their work, philosophies, and
    future goals as chaplains.
  • There is no fee for applying.
  • There will be a criminal background
    check, for which the applicant is
    responsible financially up to but not in
    excess of $50.00.  This is non-
    refundable because this is our cost:  we
    do not profit from this procedure.
  • If you are accepted for Certified
    Professional Chaplain status, you will
    be asked to submit a one-time
    enrollment fee of $300.00.  A printed
    certificate and a letter of authenticity
    from the Institute will be mailed within
    ten (10) business days. (This a lifetime
    certification fee, much less expensive than agencies
    charging $100-$300 annually.)

CERTIFICATION FOR
CHAPLAINS EDUCATED IN
OUR
PROGRAMS

We strive to offer world-class Chaplaincy
training for adult learners through our online
Fast-Track seminary-based programming.

    Our students
    tend to be
    practicing
    ministers,
    priests,
    rabbis,
    physicians,
    nurses, social
    workers,
    counselors,
Hospice chaplains seeking to increase their
professional skills, or people who have been
the recipients of Hospice or other chaplain
services who now wish to enter the field
themselves.

Because we are able to direct our curriculum
and to evaluate students' progress during the
course of their studies here, we routinely offer
Certified Professional Chaplain status to our
graduates.

This certification is provided in the form of a
diploma / certificate at the conclusion of our
students' studies.  

There is no additional charge for this
certification other than the tuition for the
program itself.
to men and women who have indicated to us that
they bring the character and education
necessary to uphold and elevate the status of the
chaplaincy profession.

Our graduates upon whom certification is
conferred demonstrate a minimum level
education and expertise by virtue of having
completed our rigorous course of studies.
