How it works

AC offers you the opportunity to obtain a national recognised qualification through recognised prior learning (RPL). Five years ministry experience and a recognised ministry credential will ensure applicants are in a strong position to source all the required evidence. Applicants without these will be assessed through an interview as to their suitability for the course prior to enrolment.

“The Diploma of Ministry (Leadership) RPL built on my ministry background and expanded my theological understandings under experienced and wise teachers. It was a pivotal point in my journey of leadership and ministry. I highly recommend anyone to attend this course, whether as a theological refresher for yourself or to qualify for formal leadership roles. You will not be disappointed!”
