Disability Ministry Independent Study Certificate Program

July 8 - December 30, 2019

Become involved with the worldwide disability movement!

It is always best to take Beyond Suffering in a class with other students, but if you are a motivated and disciplined self-starter with unique scheduling needs, the independent study format is available to you to help you keep on track to finish the course. The independent study course is offered for certificate only, and you will have six (6) months to complete it.

You will have to purchase the Beyond Suffering Study Guide in order to complete the course.

You can work at your own pace and submit the written assignments directly online. At the end of six months, after your work is submitted and approved, you will receive your Certificate of Completion either as an email attachment or in the mail.
