Our next Basic Chaplaincy Training will be held March 22-24, 2017. This 3-day course is instruction in the basics of chaplaincy and is also the prerequisite to gaining chaplaincy credentials for service under the International Alliance of Chaplain Corps (IAOCC) and partnering with Washington Community Chaplain Corps (WC3). IAOCC is a credentialing organization. We license and ordain chaplains based upon proof of calling and for the work of ministry to the workplace. This is valuable training for anyone called to work with people exposed to and recovering from trauma and crisis.
