Distance Learning Program

Thank You For Inquiring About The Faith Based Counselor Training Institute's Comprehensive Distance Learning Program.

A Word from Dr. Haynes...
"We have focused more on the content of the material than the packaging and presentation. A Distance Learning program in counseling should deal with actual 'roll up your sleeves' techniques in certain areas so that both counselors and clients will have confidence in the healing process . We have used teachers with street-wise, hands on experience to share their expertise in their particular assignments. This program will require a focused learning effort on your part."

FBCTI has certified over 5,800 people in all of its programs and various curriculums. National Continuing Education Credits are awarded upon completion of courses.
