Q. Who are the Certificate courses for?
The Certificate in Theology or Academic Studies in Theology Certificate courses are ideal for those who are already involved in caring for others in some way. Doing a course like this will also help your relationships generally and with those closest to you. Effective ministry needs to be developed and nurtured. This course will provide the foundations you need but not consume all your time. In fact, you can use some of your current ministry as the basis for some of the practical units. Learn while you are participating.

Certificate units are all assessed by assignments only. There are no exams.
