This course is made up of a series of 10 individual sections with self-assessments 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 practice a skill being taught and you will need to use web page tools to type notes and lists, or to mark Scriptures with symbols.

At the end of the course there will be several 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, notes and marked Scriptures in a single PDF document. A course certificate of completion will be available to print as well.
