Editor's Comment On Chaplain Training Locations

Since the location of the questioner is simply USA, the answer to this question about chaplain educational provider locations could be anywhere across the nation.

-- Do a search for Clinical Pastoral Education online.

-- Check with your denominational group, especially if they have a website for chaplaincy in your faith group.

-- Explore the websites of hospitals in your area, since hospitals are the largest providers of chaplain training. The chaplaincy training program is usually called Clinical Pastoral Education.

By the way, while the training for chaplaincy may be through the spiritual care department of the hospital, you are free to explore chaplain career opportunities beyond healthcare chaplaincy once you complete your chaplain training requirements.
