All of our certificate-level courses are available in two formats: self-paced and virtual classroom.
Self-Paced Courses ($245 CDN each)*
Self-paced courses are independent study courses completed in an online learning management system. These courses require the student to plan and execute their own strategy for completion within the course time frame.
Students will work with an instructor to successfully complete all required readings, assignments, papers, and exams by the course closing date. Instructors will be available by phone and by email to answer questions and offer any assistance necessary during the course.
Upon registration, students will receive the course start date, selected syllabus, access to the learning environment, and the course closing date, which is calculated as sixteen weeks from the date of registration.
Virtual Classroom Courses ($245 CDN each)*
Earn a Certificate in an Area of Concentration
Kingswood University certificates celebrate milestones of achievement, recognizing the time and effort that have been invested in attaining a level of preparation for effective ministry.
Certificates require the completion of five courses that contribute to a greater level of competency within the area of focus. Of these five courses, a minimum of three must be taken through Kingswood University. Up to two courses, from an approved ministerial preparation training program through The Wesleyan Church, may be transferred in for credit towards the certificate.
