Chaplains need to continue to learn, train and grow. As Chaplains, we also need to stay current in our fields. Volunteer Chaplain Certification is good for three years. Recertification is required every three years. Requirements for recertification are listed on the Recertification Form. Online courses, Associational conferences and attending the Florida Baptist Annual Chaplain’s meeting count toward recertification. We want the recertification requirement to be an encouragement for your professional development as a Chaplain. The better we are prepared the better we serve the Lord.
