Buddhist Chaplaincy Education
Through BCE's association with FMZO and Buddha Dharma University, we have a complete program of Buddhist Chaplaincy training as well as classes in a wide variety of Buddhist topics. Indeed, if in reviewing your application we believe you would benefit from taking some BDU classes prior to being able to offer endorsement, we will draw this to your attention.
Become Part of a Vibrant Buddhist Chaplain Community
Everyone who is endorsed by BCE will become a part of the BCE community, and by association also a part of the wider FMZO and BDU communities too. You will gain access to community forums and private Facebook communities supported by BCE where you will be able to find further information about Buddhist Chaplaincy, benefit from the support and camaraderie of your fellow Buddhist Chaplains, and partake of one of the richest Chaplaincy Resources.
Benefit From a Dedicated Mentor
As a member of BCE, if endorsed you will be assigned a mentor from the BCE core Senior Chaplain team, who will help guide you through the process to certification as a Board Certificated Chaplain. You will be required to show evidence you meet with your own teacher on at least a monthly basis, or if not you will meet with your BCE mentor monthly. You will also have a formal check-in with your BCE mentor once a year for renewal of your BCE membership and renewal of your endorsement.
