    Completed application, interview with program supervisor, health screen and criminal background check, and:

    Level I - undergraduate degree and some theological education; experience in ministry may be considered.

    Level II - undergraduate degree and some theological education; successful completion of a prior unit of CPE with evidence of having met CPE Level I Outcomes. Provide CPE evaluations.
