Perspective Chaplains,

Level One and Two distance learning can be found on Ministry Central ( You can take both Levels on Ministry Central.  To apply for endorse status you must complete Level One training and pass the tests. These are open book tests so feel free to review the material as many times as you need to. You can either take this training though our live training taught by Dr. Sidney Poe or take the training online. The courses are offered at a very reasonable cost compared to industry standards. When you apply there is a charge for application processing and first year dues. After the first year the renewal fee is $90.00 a year.

Within one year after being endorsed you are required to complete Level Two. This training is designed to give you tools to use when the need arises so that you will be able to help those in crises.

We have two sites for distance learning. Below you will see the link to That site was our first training site and only has Level One training. Because of the program limits Level One on this site had to be split up in to parts A&B with test. It takes both A&B and the test to complete Level One training. 

We sincerely pray that your journey into chaplaincy will be an anointed and fruitful path. If we can help you in any way, please contact the Administrative Assistant Brandi Hood at (800)755-8492 or 

Thank you for your interest and burden.
