Compulsory training for chaplains

3 mai 2017

The decree No. 2017-756 of 3 May 2017 renders compulsory for newly recruited military, hospital and prison chaplains, who receive remuneration, to obtain a civil and civic training diploma within two years of their recruitment. This obligation is applicable overseas only if training to obtain this diploma can be followed there, including as distance learning.
These new provisions will come into force on 1 October 2017 after the ministerial decree has set the list of approved training courses.
