what is a chaplain?
A Chaplain is a person who spiritually represents and conducts non-denominational services. To become a Chaplain, it does not require a theological education only a certification of the Chaplains Office of Canada. This can help a Chaplain contribute toward their own ministry. Chaplains are used to represent only the Christian faith, but now they represent all denominations.

THE CHAPLAINCY PROGRAM
The program enables students to become Licensed, Certified and Registered Chaplains.
As students begin their journey to become a Chaplain, students will be instructed in different areas of Christian counselling and full chaplaincy procedures. Throughout the course, workshops are taught to specialize in chaplaincy service, (eg: Christian motivation & counselling, grief counselling and our latest course Crisis Chaplaincy). Students are sent out to participate in excursions where their skills will be applied.
Duration of the course is dependent upon the student. However, the average finish time is six to eight months.
CERTIFICATION Upon Completion
Upon completion, students will receive their certificate in chaplaincy, along with their REGISTERED identification, card, badge and a full ordination service through THE CHAPLAINS OFFICE OF CANADA, or in front of their own congregation, if they prefer. They will be listed in our registry, if in good standing.
