The classroom is anywhere there is an internet connection. Online courses offer great flexibility, as you are able to fit lectures and assignments into your schedule.

What Is the Online Campus?

Courses on our Online campus are taught by CCEF-BCTI Faculty anywhere you have an internet connection.

Watch or listen to lectures, access readings, submit assignments and engage with other students in an interactive community board. Students are given access to the online classroom two weeks prior to the official start date of the term.

About CCEF-BCTI Certificates

BCTI offers certificates in partnership with CCEF. Certificates demonstrate that a student has completed courses in our program. The School of Biblical Counseling awards three different certificates: Foundations of Biblical Counseling, Topics in Biblical Counseling, and Counseling Skills and Practice.

Foundations of Biblical Counseling Certificate

Dynamics of Biblical Change
Helping Relationships
Biblical Interpretation
Human Personality
Counseling in the Local Church

Topics in Biblical Counseling Certificate

Marriage Counseling
Counseling Problems and Procedures
Counseling and Physiology
Theology and Secular Psychology

Counseling Skills and Practice Certificate

Essential Qualities of a Biblical Counselor
Counseling Children and Adolescents
Counseling Observation

Time Required for Completion

Students must complete all courses towards a particular certificate in a five-year period. All three certificates can be completed in one calendar year, through a combination of online and onsite courses. 

Order of Study

We strongly recommend that students begin their studies with Dynamics of Biblical Change, as it is foundational to all other courses (this is required for SBC Online students).  Students are permitted to take any CCEF-BCTI courses without having completed a Foundations Certificate.

Students must complete a Foundations certificate before they can receive a Topics or Counseling Skills certificate – except under special circumstances. After completing the Foundations certificate, students may choose to complete either the Topics or Counseling Skills and Practice certificates in whatever order they prefer.

Cost Involved

The admission fees for the online course in India is heavily subsidized. The cost of the first course offered (Dynamics of Biblical Change) is INR 5000. The fees have to be paid in advance and is non-refundable. Last date of admission is 30th July, 2015.

    Dear Sir,

    I have a few questions regarding this online BCTI course. I was informed that the Dynamics of Biblical Change course had already begun in January 2015. So kindly let me know if the First Module Foundations of Biblical Counselling will begin again in July ? I had missed registering for the January 2015 session.
    How do we pay the fees? I live in Gurgaon and am known to Mr C B Samuel Do you have some classes which we need to attend in person and where.
    Kindly give me more details. Do I need to have a printer. I do have an Internet connection.Will we go through all the 5 Topics in the first module ? Does this module take 12 weeks ?
    From where do we purchase the books and how many books need to be purchased?
    Hoping to hear from you soon

    May God bless you all

    In Christ
