About this course

During the course examples are used from World War 1 and World War 2 to illustrate chaplaincy practice and teach new chaplains how to perform their duties in a war fighting context.

The Tri-Service aspect of the training assists in highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of the different approaches.

This course is a practical experiential learning experience.  It builds upon the classroom learning and aids the transition to everyday chaplaincy.
