Am I able to print out the ICIT lessons?
The lessons are not available in printable format. Since this is an online course, all the material is only available online only. Once you are an enrolled students, you will always be able to log back into the course to access the material.
Are there any refunds offered for the online course?
All sales are final so consider this before enrolling, being certain you are comfortable using an online course. This course can be taken on a desktop computer, tablet or smartphone. If using the Group Study Plan, be certain that all those in your group are comfortable using this format before adding them to your group.
For the Group Study plan can we form a group with those from other areas/cities/regions?
The Group Study plan is for local groups in your area that would be able to physically meet weekly or bi-weekly to discuss the material.
I am not very good on a computer or smartphone, can I still take this online course?
Yes, however, if you are not comfortable using a computer or smartphone to access the ICIT material, you can order what we call Basic Training from Arrow Publications. This mode of study includes the four printed manuals, Christlikeness, Humility, Prayer and Unity as well as the 39 audio messages in CD format. More information: Arrow Publications Basic Training
If I enroll how much time do I need to reserve for ICIT lessons and audios each week?
The answer to this is very individualized. First, let us say that the Holy Spirit does a deep, life-changing work through the training material. That's why the lessons are paced over a three to six month period, depending upon enrollment plan. If students fall behind and cram, the transformation is not nearly as profound. So, be certain to count the cost before enrolling for 3-6-months of intense training by the Holy Spirit.
The lessons and audios each week are not real long. The chapters are only 8-10 pages and the training includes 1-2 audio messages with each session, running about 30 minutes each. The written material can take around 30 minutes to read through. However, students can find themselves drawn into prayer, worship, Bible study, devotional time, journaling and more. Of course many students find themselves going back over the material several times, even after graduation.
If a person is already a pastor or has a degree do they still have to start off on Level I?
Yes, Level I is foundational. We have most every walk of life enrolled in ICIT including many pastors, rabbis, Ph.D.s, homemakers and truck drivers, to name a few. One goal of Level I is to remove the trappings and misdirection of mere religion, and simplify the vision of attaining Christlikeness. The student will also be positioned and strengthened in Christlike, "unoffendable" intercession for their families, churches and communities.
I live outside the United States. How much will tuition be in my country's currency?
