The CMC Program will prepare and educate you on the following:

  • The common key responsibilities applicable to all personnel in an Incident Command System (ICS) Operation
  • The use of religious support (chaplain/debriefing) resources
  • Critical Incident Stress Management
  • The National Framework Structure for Emergency Management


Whenever disasters or another urgent matters occur there is a heightened dependence on religious as well as mental support to help people and communities recover from the consequences of these occasions.  Chaplains in all areas of service need the information provided through this course to help prepare for the challenge of ministering those in need after such tragedies.

  3. Henry says:

    this is such a critical program to meet the needs of our nation today.

  4. Jake Roberts says:

    This program, as well as others from the American Board for Certification in Homeland Security, really dive into the needs of professionals, like myself. I love that Dr. O’Block takes the time to think about what it is we would like to see in a course as well as find out what it is that we need in a course. Kudos to him!!

    • Kyle says:

      I agree. The CMC program is one of the best resources I’ve seen for chaplains. I’ve recommended it to several colleagues who want to further their education and be more prepared. Keep up the good work ABCHS!

  5. Terrel says:

    I was unable to take this course because I didn’t meet some of the chaplain requirements. (I haven’t been a chaplain long enough.) But I was able to take the Certified in Disaster Preparedness course, and found it to be very informative. I plan to take the CMC course as soon as I get enough experience under my belt.

  6. Andy says:

    Has anyone taken the Disaster Preparedness Certification course offered by ABCHS? I’m thinking about taking it. Is it the kind of course a chaplain should take or do I skip it? Just wondering. Thanks to Dr. O’Block for making these courses possible.

  7. Tony Z says:

    In answer to Andy’s question, Yes! The Disaster Preparedness Certification program is well worth a chaplain’s time and energy. It has so much information needed by anyone who works with law enforcement or any other agency charged with protecting the public. I highly recommend it.
