The GFI Counseling Institute also has a series of vocational level courses related to Exchanged Life counseling. These tuition-based courses can be taken by anyone as continuing education, and are especially useful for those appreciate the Galatians 2:20 perspective in personal ministry. The courses include an online component with a password-required Course Page that includes the Student Guide, online videos, resources, and a review test. The courses do not have an assignment schedule; you can start at any time and proceed at your own pace. These courses are still available as traditional mail-based correspondence courses as well.  A Certificate of Completion is given upon completion of each course, and the Diploma of Biblical Counseling is awarded after the completion ten of them.
