About Our Distance Courses
Since the 1940s Moore College has been training lay men and women through its external courses.
The Preliminary Theological Certificate (PTC) trains Christian lay people for children’s and youth ministries, as Bible-study leaders and lay preachers. Over the past 70 years people have grown in their understanding of God through individual study or together in church groups. Around the world the PTC has been used to equip pastors and teachers in over 80 countries.
With the Diploma of Biblical Theology (DipBT), Moore College is expanding its educational support with an accredited award. The DipBT is for lay people who have ministry responsibilities, help run churches and missions, and for people in remote, overseas or regional locations and those travelling for missionary work abroad. It can be used as a pathway to further theological study.
