Who should considering this training?

In a chaplaincy role you often work with people who are experiencing times of crisis, grief and loss or have experienced a crucial life-changing incident. Engaging with such vulnerable people required sensitivity and the discerning application of extensive knowledge and skills. You will need to be able to work independently and self-manage your time, activities and wellbeing.

“I studied the Diploma of Chaplaincy, having some anxiety about formal study, I was not sure what to expect. However I  really enjoyed obtaining my diploma, it was both interesting and challenging. The intensives were very informative, and the lecturers were outstanding. Tony Montgomery was there to answer any queries that I had during the week. Having done chaplaincy for some number of years, I would fully recommend those considering to gain some new skills to do this course.”
