Diploma Courses

The GFI Counseling Institute also has a series of courses that can be used for Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and/or to earn a Diploma. These tuition-based courses include an online component with a password-required Course Page (see the linked Course titles below). The course pages include 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 of ten.

All courses have the free “For Me to Live is Christ” course or GFI’s Exchanged Life Conference as a prerequisite.

To apply for formal CEU credit, you may inquire of your supervisory agency.

You can register, order any required materials, and pay the course tuition by credit card by phoning John Woodward at GFI: 865-429-0450.
