How it Works…

1.1 – Logging In

Log in using the topbar menu. You will be asked to provide your username and password which you created when you purchased your first course. 

1.2 – I Forgot my Password

If you forgot your password follow the on screen instructions to reset it. You will have to check your email in order to find the link to create your new password. If you still have trouble contact us and we will reset it for you. 

2.0 – Choosing Courses

When you start your study with us you will have to choose between Degree courses and Masters courses (coming soon). You are free to study whichever courses you like, without providing the necessary credentials. You should be aware however: if you want to approach CFI to transfer your online study into eligible credit hours you may need to provide evidence that you qualify for the level you have studied at. High marks may be evidence in some cases but in other cases it will not be enough.

2.1 – Earn Credit Hours with CFI 

As you complete online courses you qualify for credit hours with CFI. Earn enough credit hours and you can earn a diploma, degree or masters with CFI. We have outlined the requirements below.  

Earn a Diploma in Practical Theology with CFI = complete 16 courses + project (there are no diploma courses on offer – diploma credit hours are earnt by completeing degree courses without qualifying for degree level study)

Earn a Degree in Practical Theology with CFI = complete 16 courses + project

Earn a Masters with in Theology & Peacebuilding with CFI = complete 8 courses + dissertation

 

2.2 – Degree Courses

If you are attempting degree courses we suggest that you satisfy one of the following:

  1. Have diploma level qualifications in theological study
  2. Have degree level qualifications in another area of study
  3. Have at least 5 years experience in ministry

If you do not satisfy any of these criteria it will be difficult for you to transfer your online study to ‘degree’ credit hours with CFI. High marks in the online courses may also support your case for degree credit hours. If you fail to prove deserving of degree credit hours, you will still be awarded diploma level credit hours.

 

2.3 – Masters Courses

If you are attempting masters courses we suggest that you satisfy one of the following:

  1. Have degree level qualifications in a relevant field of study
  2. Have at least 10 years experience in ministry

If you do not satisfy any of these criteria it will be difficult for you to transfer your online study to ‘masters’ credit hours with CFI. High marks in the online courses may also support your case for nasters credit hours. If you fail to prove deserving of masters credit hours, you will still be awarded degree level credit hours.

 

3.0 – Assignments

You will be given a word limit which you must not exceed. You will be expected to reference you work adequaltely. We accept both digital and written assignments. Please download the assignment guidlines for further details. 

 

3.1 – Exams

Each course has an exam. Exam instructions vary from course to course but generally are timed, supervised, close book papers. You will be expected to attend a CFI approved exam centre, either in Jos or through one of our partner churches or organisations. It is up to you to contact your study supercisor to make the necessary arrangements for your exam.
