Do I have to go to the Cove to get my training?
You can attend the Chaplains Conference in June, but you can also get trained in various locations around the country as well. The Sharing Hope in Crisis seminar, as well as 2 CISM courses, are offered in 12-15 cities each year.
I’ve had other response training, do I still need the CISM courses?
Yes. While there is other great training, we are committed to this standard for three reasons: it is great training in providing care for those in pain, it is recognized by federal, state and often local jurisdiction and mental health, and the courses that we use do not violate Biblical principle.
If I have previously taken the His Presence in Crisis, do I still need to take the Sharing Hope in Crisis?
Yes, do to the growth of the RRT ministry and the need for ongoing education, we are asking all of our current chaplains to make sure that they have taken the Sharing Hope in Crisis course as well as two CISM courses.
What if I can't find a CISM course in my area?
Please call the RRT office and lets us know. We are very interested in making sure that you can get the training if you are working towards being a RRT Chaplain.
