Here are answers to some of our most commonly asked questions. If you have a question that is not listed here, please use the form on the right side of this page, and submit your questions.
How are your courses structured?
A typical course is made up of units which must be completed sequentially. Each unit often has material to read and or watch/listen. Most units have a quiz that must be passed before moving onto the next unit. Each course has a major assessment at the end, which might take the form of a major quiz, or a small written essay.
Do I get a certificate?
Yes. For each course you take with Peace Institute, there is a certificate of completion. This will usually be mailed to you and is received up to a month after you finish your major assessment. Mail times vary depending on the geographic location of the student.
Are your courses accredited?
At this time, our courses are not accredited by any government or tertiary institution. However our courses are comprehensive and useful for equipping and training the believer and minister in service for Christ.

Do I have to pay the full unit fee up front before starting the course?
Yes. It’s not possible to start the course without completing a purchase at this point.
Can I get a refund if I change my mind?
No. Please think carefully and consider if you have the time to commit to proper study. Each course will take several hours of your teach per unit. Most courses have 10 or more units.
Are Discounts Possible?
Under certain circumstances we have offered discounts. If you have attended apostolic training in real life (in person) we are happy to extend a 50% discount. Please contact us if you wish to discuss a discount.
Can I download lectures, or must I watch online?
You need to be online to watch and listen to our materials. If you have a smartphone, you can login online and listen while you drive or do other tasks and mark each complete as you finish them.
Do I have to complete the course in a set time?
No. There is no completion time for your study, however it is best to form a good habit of weekly study to make sure you get through the materials. Delay can often extend for months and we wish to encourage all students in the pursuit of excellence.
Can I just listen or watch the materials and not complete assessments?
No. It’s not possible to study without completing assessment material. Each course is built in a sequential manner and you must complete one unit before proceeding to the next. If the first unit quiz is not finished, you will be unable to move onto the next unit.
Why did I score Zero on some assessments?
Some assessments are automatically marked, and you will obtain your score instantly. Our major assessments to complete course all need manual marking. For these you will initially see a score of zero, but later it will be adjusted to be correct. Regardless of this, if you do not know the answers to a quiz, you may score zero for that legitimate reason.
If I have any questions, what do I do?
For any other questions, please use the question form on this page, or alternately, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
