Welcome to the Certificate IV in Chaplaincy and Pastoral Care!

As a chaplain, you can make a difference in the lives of others.
Chaplains help people work through life issues, assist in times of crisis and provide a safe place for people to share their story.

The Certificate IV in Chaplaincy & Pastoral Care is a nationally accredited qualification that will equip you to provide a high standard of care in a range of areas within chaplaincy.

Our trainers have extensive experience in chaplaincy and pastoral care, with an in-depth understanding of how to implement theory into real, practical care. Hear their inspiring stories as they share some of the remarkable experiences they have had the privilege of being involved in.

Students can choose to study the full Certificate IV in Chaplaincy and Pastoral Care, a short course, or attend Professional Development Days. Intensives are delivered nationwide, across 3 or 5 days face to face, Thursday to Friday 8.30am to 5.00pm and Saturday 8.30am to 3.00pm. Students must attend the Intensives in order to complete the course. These intensives are supplemented by the practicum component of working in the field in areas such as prisons, schools, hospitals and aged care.
