Peer Review

Please Note: Effective 1/1/2023, the Peer Review process will be done through the Certification Portal.

Submission of a peer review, which includes providing evidence of continued connection with your faith community, is required every five years for maintenance of certification. The year you are required to complete a peer review (including providing evidence of continued connection with your faith community) is based on the year you became a board certified chaplain or an associate certified chaplain. If you were first provisional certified, the requirement is based on the date of provisional certification.

NOTE: Today’s situation/events would qualify to allow a remote meeting through Skype/Zoom/conference call. Should you have a peer review meeting remotely, enter/indicate on the Peer Review Report Form that your meeting was held remotely. Be sure to enter the names of the members of your committee also. Signatures are not necessary on the form.

All members to whom this requirement applies in a given year will be notified in January of that year as to the exact requirements and submission deadlines.
