Continuing Education Guidelines and Forms



The continuing education program for  maintenance of BCCI certification is designed to develop and promote chaplaincy skills for the board certified chaplain (BCC) and associate certified chaplain (ACC), whether current or provisional.

This program says to patients, clients, colleagues, other professions and the public, that BCCI certified chaplains are committed to developing and maintaining quality professional knowledge and skills. To maintain their certification, individuals must engage in continuing education each year for their professional growth and development.
