The worldwide support network for non-religious chaplains


New for 2021, we are pleased to announce our online Humanist Chaplaincy Level 1 qualification.

This is an introductory qualification that will teach you the fundamentals of practising as a Humanist Chaplain and replaces our annual in-person training event. It is 100% online including video lessons, reading materials and assessments. The course is self-paced so you can study at a time that suits you. Completing the course takes approximately 4 hours of study time.


  • Understanding humanist philosophy
  • Chaplaincy theory
  • Chaplaincy in practice
  • Safety, remit and signposting


Students are expected to have some knowledge of humanist philosophy before undertaking the course. We also recommend familiarising yourself with the requirements of being a Humanist Chaplain.


The course fee is currently £39. There are no additional fees for assessment resits.
