Frequently Asked Questions
How much of my time is needed to take a course?
The first level courses start out needing approximately 8-10 hours a week. This is a conservative estimate. If you haven’t taken a course in a while or been reading on a regular basis, give yourself a little more time. You need to spend a couple hours a day on the program, which can be part of your daily devotional time with the Lord. The higher level courses will require an additional 4-6 hours of study time conservatively.
Can I take more than one course at a time?
Yes, you can take as many or as few courses to fit your schedule as long as you have the free time needed to complete the course materials.
Do I have to be a Pastor or a trained minister to take this program?
No, this program is for anyone that has a heart for ministry and desires additional preparation and training.
Should I take all the first level courses first or just pick one track and do all four levels progressively?
We recommend that you complete all the first level courses first to give you a well-rounded foundation to build upon. Then continue on in the track that your heart is being more pulled toward while being led by the Holy Spirit.
Do I have to download anything onto my computer?
No, you just simply log on to the online learning center at http://healingcertification.com/coursearea/ and everything is there right at your fingertips. You just click on the videos and other course materials that are supplied.
Do I have to attend any manditory meetings or come to the Global Awakening home office?
No, the CHCP program is all done online from the comfort of your home. However, we highly recommend that you attend one of our conferences or ministry trips so that you can have a practical experience praying over the sick.
Do I have to pay for an entire track or the whole program upfront?
No, you pay as you go. You only need to pay for the courses that you take at the time of registration. This allows you to pay over time to complete the program at an affordable price.
How long does it take to complete the program?
If you are only taking one track, this can be done in 10 months while taking one class at a time. The entire program would take 2 ½ years to complete if you only took one class at a time. If you took multiple courses at once, in much less time. To complete the entire program you must pass 12 courses (four levels of three tracks). We offer 5 sessions of courses a year.
What do I do if I’m planning to take a missions trip during a course?
If you are only going to be gone a week or two, we will work with you on getting your assignments turned in ahead of time and allowing grace for you to catch up once you return. If you plan on taking a trip that is over two weeks long, we recommend you postpone taking the course until the next session, so you can fully enjoy your trip without the added stress of trying to complete assignments.
