Chaplaincy Events and Training

All NAMB and BGCO endorsed, BGCO deployed chaplains (DR, OCIRT, CIC, motorcycle, etc.) are required to attend continuing education training annually to maintain endorsement. 

The Chaplain’s Office provides/allows many options for you to accomplish this annual training. You can retake manual training, OSFA, CISM (Individual or Group), or you can take new CISM classes or the Integris Baptist training we let you know about. We also allow other training (on a case-by-case basis) that would enhance your chaplain skills with prior authorization. Training events must add up to at least 8 hours to complete your annual requirement.
