Hospice Chaplain: This training is the one for which we receive the most daily requests. As the Baby-Boomer
generation ages, there is an ever-increasing demand for Hospice Services. And, along with the growth of Hospice
facilities comes a never before seen need to educate well-trained chaplains. Saint James College's American
Chaplain Training Institute is the pioneer in offering online training for Certified Professional Chaplains.
require that their Chaplains also
- Today, most Hospices programs
be ordained as ministers, priests, or
rabbis. Our sister seminary, The
Center for Ministerial Studies, has
recently dove-tailed its curriculum with
the curriculum here at the American
Chaplain Training Institute. This
provides our online chaplain students
with the unique opportunity for lessons completed in one major to be completely accepted in a second
academic major. Thus, online Ordination students' seminary studies may be completely accepted in a second
academic major...online Professional Chaplain
Ordination students may also obtain full credit toward a parallel online Certified Chaplain major, and vice versa, for
a very low additional administrative fee.
- Those wishing to obtain nationally-respected quality affordable college-level job retraining to improve their
job prospects may well benefit from our world-class online chaplain training program.
There are other chaplain training programs available in the U.S. However, to our knowledge, they are not offered by
government-chartered seminary/college programs, as we are. Nor are they available online. Besides Saint James
College Seminary's Chaplain Training Institute, there is another institution worth noting. It is the very highly-
regarded ACPE - American Chaplain Professional Education organization.
Among the chief differences between our program and their excellent offering is that we provide the world's first
legitimate online college / seminary-based Chaplain training curriculum. ACPE requires students be able to travel
(often to a distant community) to be physically
present in a classroom.
- PLUS, we offer 0% Tuition Financing!! The American Chaplain Training Institute also offers interest-free
tuition financing for its Fast-Track online studies. This is possible because we are a division of the not-for-
profit Saint James College Seminary, which historically offers interest-free tuition financing coupled with low
rates. Our trustees' mission is to offer the lowest-possible tuition rate in America. Coupling these features,
you will find us to be among the most-affordable college-level programs anywhere. This is a very big plus in
these difficult financial times.
