IN CLASS TRAINING SESSIONS SUSPENDED AS A RESULT OF COVID-19

As a result of the COVID-19 crisis, the training facilities currently being utilized by the CPCA have been closed until March 31st 2020. We will be meeting on March 31st to discuss the rescheduling of P.O.S.T. Courses Basic Law Enforcement Chaplain & Critical Incident Stress Debriefing. In the event that mandatory closures continue beyond March 31st our team will enact a VIRTUAL CLASSROOM to allow registered participants in the training an opportunity to get their training and certification as these skills will be in demand dealing with the crisis at hand. Our Senior Command Staff is working diligently at making this a streamline process so we can continue to have trained individuals out there helping those in need within the State of California.

The California Practical Chaplain Association was established for the purpose of recruiting, training and supporting men and women who wish to serve God in various fields of Chaplaincy. The CPCA is a registered non profit corporation in the State of California.

Our primary goal is to interface with both ministerial and secular worlds for the purpose of promoting tolerance and understanding, and to provide professional, trained, and dedicated Chaplains in the work force. We accomplish this by providing training, recognition and certification for working Chaplains in various fields of Chaplaincy.

There are several areas of Chaplaincy. Many people are involved in ministries that are actually Chaplaincy and don’t realize it. They lack 3 things in order to be a Chaplain:
Training
Certification
Credentials

The C.P.C.A. endorses all types of Chaplaincy and recognizes the needs for coverage. Some areas of coverage are:


Collegiate - Fire - Hospice - Hospital - Industrial - Jail & Prison - Military - Motor Cycle - Surfing - Police - Search & Rescue - Sports And Transportation

If you are working in an area of Chaplaincy not listed, please contact us. We will determine if it falls within one of our programs.
