Our Certificates and Diplomas are based on the CLT (Calvary Life Tutors) Curriculum, which is especially designed to take you from spiritual immaturity to maturity and to give you full assurance in your walk with God.

Each year is divided into several modules.  Each module, with a textbook that contains the material for various lectures and a workbook that students must work through.  Workbooks are submitted for examination and marks on the specific module.  Examination papers can also be presented for each module, if necessary.  In addition, students receive one or two assignments to complete each year.  After each year, the student receives a Certificate and after completing three years, a Diploma.
