Chaplaincy Training – Course Time 30 hours:  ADRN’s Chaplaincy program is designed to equip volunteer Chaplains to minister to individuals, families, the community, and more in times of crisis.  ADRN’s Chaplaincy course consists of three 10-hour classes.  The Chaplaincy Training sessions will cover, in no particular order: Introduction to Chaplaincy, Confidentiality & Ethics, Death Notification, Compassion Fatigue & Burn Out, Power Interventions, Suicide & Grief, Communication Skills-Listening, Dealing with Difficult People, Workplace Violence, Relationship Recovery-Divorce, Conflict Resolution, Stress & Anger Management, Children in Crisis, PTSD in Children, School Crisis Events, Recognizing Post-traumatic Stress in self or others, and Stress Management. The ADRN Chaplaincy Course requires participants to complete ADRN’s Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) training as a pre-requisite.  ADRN Chaplains must be “Spirit Called” to the position of Chaplain. Potential participants are also required to complete an ADRN Chaplain Application, furnish 3 Spiritual & 3 Personal references, and participate in an interview prior to the first day of training. This course is instructed by the Chaplain Core Team & Guest Chaplains from the community.  The three sections of the course must be completed in the order they are offered online (Chaplain Session I, Chaplain Session II, & Chaplain Session III). If a training session is missed, the trainee must start the training again. This is required due to the scheduling of community Chaplains, as trainers who may not always be able be available to teach their session during a particular training. To become an ADRN Chaplain and receive an official ADRN badge and a Certificate of Certification, participants must complete all three Chaplaincy classes as stated earlier. Training is offered as a Non-Certified course if desired, however, all vetting requirements are still applicable. Training cost is $105 per session (Scholarship pricing & savings bundle available online). CLICK TO VIEW CHAPLAINCY ACADEMY PAGE > View current training specials >
