Who Can Attend

Sponsored by a grant from the

Cost to Attend

Anyone can attend our classes. We do not require any specific faith community, nor do we restrict based on faith. Additionally, we welcome those who have ordinations, as well as those who would be considered "lay" ministers. We welcome all houses of worship, the general community, and first responder agencies (police, fire, and rescue) to participate in these classes.

Classes that have open public registration have an average cost to attend of $35. This fee covers the cost of registering at ICPC and copyright use of the materials, as well as food and printing. The cost of the trainer(s) is covered by grants we receive throughout the year.

Additional fees may be incurred for classes that are developed and held on-site at an agency or organization, as these are not specifically covered by grants. Costs are negotiable and modest.
