Manna University’s Certified Advanced Chaplain Credential Testing

I.F.O.C. Advanced Chaplain credentials qualify the Chaplain to take the C.A.C. assessment through Manna University. This assessment process includes enrollment in a short self-paced online course to review advanced chaplaincy content knowledge, followed by a fifty-question exam. Those who successfully complete this C.A.C. assessment through MU will receive the C.A.C. credential, an academically awarded micro-credential that may be renewed every three years.

Details and Steps Regarding the Assessment Process

1. Before applying for the Certified Advanced Chaplain credential (C.A.C.) through Manna University (MU), each chaplain must already have the I.F.O.C. Advanced Chaplain credential. For this reason, C.A.C. applicants must provide a copy of their I.F.O.C. ID card when completing the online application.

2. Complete Manna University’s C.A.C. Assessment Application which includes the assessment fee of $125.

3. Eligible I.F.O.C. Advanced Chaplains may apply for the C.A.C. assessment process at any time.

4. The C.A.C. credential expires on the same date as your I.F.O.C. Advanced Chaplain credential. For this reason, you should renew the C.A.C. every three years as close as possible to when you renew your I.F.O.C. Advanced Chaplain credential.

5. To renew the C.A.C. credential, you will repeat the assessment process, including payment of the renewal assessment fee that is currently $125.

6. Once admitted to the short self-paced online course, C.A.C. candidates may have up to thirty (30) days to complete the course content review modules and the fifty-question final exam.

7. At the end of the assessment process, C.A.C. candidates who earn a passing grade will be awarded the Certified Advanced Chaplain credential, an academically awarded micro-credential through Manna University.
