    Program Description


    Participants enrolling in this three‐semester diploma program will meet the 12 educational requirements for recognition of ministries credentials through the Independent Assemblies of God Canada.

    Each course will consist of:

    • Video Lectures – the lectures will range from 30 minutes to 70 minutes each. We estimate the student will need to set aside 2 to 3 hours per week in order to view class lectures and keep up with the recommended timetable.
    • Reading – while each course differs we estimate students will need to set aside 1 to 3 hours per week for reading assignments.
    • Previews / Quizzes / Exams – we estimate that the viewing of previews or taking quizzes and the taking of exams will require 1 to 2 hours per week. This will vary week to week.

    Meet the Professors


    We have supplied access to four different lectures representative of four different subjects from four different professors. Not only can the prospective student view what their lecture online experience will be like, they will also have the opportunity to experience the different personalities and attributes of our professors. This may help the student in choosing which classes they desire to take.

      3. The number of lectures per course will vary. They will average 20 – 40 lectures per course.
      4. The lectures will range from 30 minutes to 70 minutes each.
      5. A student may finish the course as quickly as he is able but will always have 16 weeks to finalize all responsibilities and view the video lectures.
      6. If for some reason the student gets behind our suggested time table, it will not hurt them in an overall sense. With a little extra effort they should be able to catch up.
