THE CHAPLAINCY PROGRAM
The program enables students to become licensed, certified and registered Chaplains.
As students begin their journey to be a chaplain, they will be e-mailed a copy of the curriculum. Students will be taught in different areas of Christian Counselling. However, throughout the course, workshops will be provided to specialize in a particular service (ex: Christian motivational & counselling, funeral ceremonies, etc.,). In addition, students will be sent out to participate in excursions (ex: funeral homes, hospitals etc.,) where their skills will be applied.
Duration of the course is dependent upon the student. However, the average finish time is up to 6 to 8 months.
Award Upon Completion
Upon completion, students will receive their degree in chaplaincy, along with a certificate, identification, registered badge, and an ordination service through THE CHAPLAINS OFFICE OF CANADA, or in front of their own congregation if they prefer. Lastly, they will be listed in the registry as in good standing.
