Common Qualifications and Competencies for Professional Chaplaincy Updated

Attention all chaplains potentially seeking certification from APC, AAPC, CASC, NAJC, or NACC:

The Common Qualifications and Competencies for Professional Chaplains, first agreed upon by the above organizations in 2004, have been updated, altered, and now include two additional criteria for 2017 applicants. Any applicant for certification who submits material after April 1, 2017, must utilize the updated competency list, including the two new competencies that address research and group leadership.

If you have specific questions, please contact Miriam Dakin, Area Certification Chair for North Carolina and Virginia. Miriam is manager of Centra Health in Lynchburg, VA. Contact her at miriam.dakin@centrahealth.com.

All the best to all our NC chaplains who are pursuing certification!
