Aim of the Program

This program is created to provide foundation in the Christian faith and equip participants with the tools they need to grow in their relationship with God.

Study Process

Unleash your potential and lead the way in your education experience with our self-paced Distance Learning Program.


Our materials not only supply information and content but also pose thought-provoking questions to test your comprehension and encourage deeper understanding. The questions can be found at the end of each lesson and can also serve as discussion topics when studying with someone or group.


The lessons are divided into two parts. Once the first part is completed, the student is asked to take the final test for that part, which can be found at the end of the book.


Once both tests have been completed, from the printed material, the student must complete and return the last two pages of the book so that they can be examined and the student can receive the result. For eLearning students, the test must be completed in the system.


It is possible to obtain the printed book (only in Latvian and Russian) and access to the e-Learning system. This allows students to study from the handbook and take the tests online.
