Online Option

Online training through the Lewis Center for Learning is available and will be considered as a valid option. Understanding Clergy Ethics costs $49 and if you choose this option, you are responsible for your own registration, payment and completion directly through the Lewis Center, as this training is NOT provided by the NTC.

The training consists of 12 modules with interactive elements and answers to be submitted for review. Taking approximately 8 hours to complete, work may be saved for up to 60 days and your certificate will be issued to you upon your passing the program.

You must email your certificate of completion to Mary Skinner at the Center for Leadership Development  by Oct. 5, 2022. Failure to comply will be reported to the Bishop and the Cabinet. All clergy out of compliance are in violation of our liability insurance and the requirements set forth in the Book of Discipline.
