The Institute for Clinical Pastoral Training (ICPT) is a multi-faith chaplaincy educational community. We strive to expand interdisciplinary educational opportunities while promoting effective communication and collaboration amongst spiritual care providers in healthcare, prison, military, police, fire, and religious organizations.



Clinical Pastoral Education

The Institute for Clinical Pastoral Training (ICPT) is dedicated to offering a standardized and evidenced-based Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) training program to chaplains and spiritual care providers.


What Makes Our CPE Program Unique?

Students have the option of taking 100% of each training unit via Interactive Distance Learning (IDL) or Hybrid Learning which includes both on-site and online learning modules.

  • Our 100% IDL units are designed to fit into the busy lives we all have and does not require travel to a designated clinical site. Instead, students can complete clinical hours at their current place of ministry. Students are not limited to the health-care industry.
  • Our Hybrid Learning units blend face-to-face classroom instruction with online training. This allows CPE supervisors to deploy technology with face-to-face teaching to meet the unique needs of their learners.
