Training Resources

The PCLEC recognizes and appreciates the dedication of the many well-trained academics, licensed professionals and volunteers who respond to emotional trauma in the field on a daily basis.


We strive to ensure that our volunteer chaplains serve our citizens in a highly competent manner that is reflective of their skills based on continued specialized training. We also understand that there are inherent dangers associated with a self-taught approach to this endeavor. It is with this understanding that the Chaplaincy encourages interested parties to seek further guidance and base-line certification before assuming any role in this form of public interaction. 

The following is a short list of resources to consider in the initial development of competency that is so necessary to be effective during traumatic human events:


International Conference Of Police Chaplains (ICPC) 

International Critical Incident Stress Foundation (ICISF) 

Psychological First Aid 

Mental Health First Aid
