Our program allows
Clinical Pastoral Education Training Institute
CPEti may be the only CPE
training program that
understands and
accommodates  the tight
schedules faced by today's
busy mid-career spiritual

As we explain in our FAQs, the
    very foundation
    of CPE studies
    back in the
    1930's was that
    students were
    required to
    work in direct-
    care situations
    with patients.  
    This continues
to be the bedrock of CPE training.  However, here at The Clinical Pastoral Education Training Institute,
we believe that our program stands alone in permitting students to perform their patient-care
practicum work in their own communities...  and...we may be the only program that
allows students
to use their current ministerial / chaplaincy / human services work to satisfy this requirement

And, our students may satisfy the "classroom" portion of their studies totally online from their homes
or offices.  With
CPEti, there is no need for mid-career spiritual professionals to leave their families
and their jobs to go off and study in bricks-and-mortal classrooms.
  • You can do the "classroom"
     portion of your studies
     completely on line, at home

  •  If you wish, you may get the
         okay to satisfy your practicum
     requirement with your current
     ministry / service employment
