Due to the times we are in, we must learn to adapt.
Some of our training centers are experimenting with online CPE.
The first is Jethro Guidance Center. It presently is holding online CPE with 13 trainees, and two supervisors from all over the Philippines. They plan to finish the unit in October.
Our first real Online CPE (Jethro Guidance Center)
Bukal Life Care is in the process of developing two possible CPE online programs— one for seminary students, and one for ministers. The exact start is to be determined, but could start as soon as mid-August.
The attached file gives updated information on the requirements for a Supervisor-in-Training to be considered for Diplomate Board.

CPE has been traditionally built around training seminarians for hospital chaplaincy. Over time CPE has broadened to train for and serve other settings. Due to this, there have been the growth of sub-specializations for unique forms of chaplaincy.
The following is an initial list of subspecializations of supervisors. They can be available for subspecialty-based CPE units, or as mentors.
- Drug/Alcohol Rehabilitation Chaplaincy: Diplomate Sim Dang-Awan Jr.
- Crisis Response Chaplaincy: Diplomate Celia Munson
- Community Chaplaincy: Diplomate Paul Tabon
- Corporate Chaplaincy: S.I.T. Renato Eustaquio
- Military Chaplaincy: Diplomate Sim Dang-Awan Jr.
