After completing the course content, students will be required to take an online exam.
Once you finish the first-year program, you will receive a Certificate of Completion. You are then eligible to apply for the second-year Practical Ministry Program at one of our Charis Bible College campuses. The hands-on nature of our second-year program requires students to attend one of CBC's physical locations, day and night classes are available. This program cannot be offered online.
Interactive courses also contain a Step 3: Respond
Upon completion of the lesson, each student will be presented with a question for discussion. Participation in the course requires at least one written response to the topic. After the student posts a response they will be able to view the responses of other students within the class, as well as, feedback from the class facilitator. For each lesson, students are required to also respond to at least one comment from a classmate.
Interactive courses are given in 5-week long terms. The eight lessons of each course are covered at a rate of two lessons per week for a total of 4 weeks. The 5th week is set aside for the course exam. We estimate each course will take approximately 16 hours to complete.
The eight lessons and exam for each course may be taken at your own pace. With Self-Paced courses, there are no facilitators or class interaction, so you may work as fast or as slowly as you like. We estimate each course will take approximately 12 hours to complete.
