BCCI News & Updates October 2020
BCCI is currently in the process of conducting over 260 BCC Candidate interviews virtually. So far, the proceedings of these interviews have run smoothly with little technical difficulties. The Commission on Certification will revisit the procedure and work to continually improve the process for the next set of committees. The next deadline for applications is set for November 11, 2020.
Maintenance of Certification: In addition to annual dues and fees for maintaining your BCCI credentials, certified chaplains are required to complete the following items as part of their maintenance of certification:
- Annual Ethics Accountability Statement: Certified members of APC are required to sign and submit their annual ethics accountability statement as a requisite to continue with your certification. You can submit your ethics accountability statement HERE.
- Continuing Education: Certified chaplains are required to submit their annual Continuing Education Report by January 31, 2021 to retain your certification. Now is the appropriate time to fill out your report and submit it to APC/BCCI office staff. The 2020 C.E. Report Form can be found on the BCCI website.
