Certificate III in Christian Ministry and Theology – 11236NAT

The Cert III CMT program is delivered in distance mode. It is designed for those seeking to grow and develop in their understanding of Scripture and practical ministry applications.

It is ideally suited for Senior School students and people who may not have done any tertiary study, or who are not looking for a “heavier” program. It is a self-paced program and people can commence at any time. However, if the Cert III is studied as part of Year 11 and 12 schooling, study dates align with Queensland state school terms. The Cert III is a comfortable entry point for busy people who are looking to carve out some intentional time for their personal spiritual development

The full qualification will take between 400 and 470 hours of structured/supervised study plus additional unsupervised hours (approximately 800) to complete (depending on electives chosen). Of these hours, 360 hours are in core units of the study, with the remainder being in elective units.

Recognition of prior learning is available in part or full and assessed on prior training and experience. People are welcome to enrol in individual modules without completing the full qualification if there are specific areas of interest to them.

There are no entry requirements for this qualification. Learners will need a satisfactory grasp of English skills (reading and writing), which will be assessed at the time of applying for enrolment.

The subjects are designed to equip people to:

Identify how the Bible, Christian life and practice are understood today
Identify theological information within themes and issues
Relate this theological information to a Christian way of life
Communicate theology in everyday language

Learners will need basic computer skills in word processing, email and web browsing and the use of a computer/electronic device that has reliable access to the internet.

There are no specified start dates for this course. As it is a distance program, learners can commence on confirmation of their enrolment when provided with access to our online learning platform. Course Cost: $2415 (minimum depending on electives chosen)
