This course is made up of a series of 14 individual sections with self-assessment to assist you in achieving the course learning objectives/outcomes.
Each section you will watch and listen to the course video and examine summaries in the Course Reading section and Bible texts in the Scripture Window of the web page. An important part of this course is applying what you have learned to real examples. Several times throughout the course you will be asked to watch a sample video of a discussion.
At the end of the course there will be self-assessment questions for you to answer. These questions are self-guided, with answers given and intended for your own knowledge and understanding of the material. There are no recorded scores or pass/fail requirements in this course.
At the end of the course there will be an opportunity for you to navigate to a page where you may print all of the course readings and notes in a single PDF document. A course certificate of completion will be available to print as well.
