What should I look for when choosing a provider?
When choosing the Provider for your christian counselling education, it is important to ask yourself
Are the courses
Ensure the course you enrol in is theologically sound. Our courses integrate Theology, Psychology and Spirituality. We train and equip Christian counsellors, rather than Christians who do counselling.
Are they taught
You want to make sure your teachers are well qualified. As a leading, accredited, national education provider we are committed to the highest level of professional excellence – demonstrated through the quality of our educators; and the process, delivery and outcomes of our courses.
Does it offer
Flexible study options is important when choosing a course that's right for you. AIFC offers seminar online blended, and online supported modes of our course. You choose which delivery mode is best suited for your lifestyle and work commitments.
Is the study
Finding a course that fits your budget is important. With funding options and Austudy & Abstudy available to eligible students, our courses continue to be affordable and within reach of those seeking to become a qualified counsellor.
Are the courses accredited?
When looking for a suitable course, accreditation is essential. All our courses are nationally recognised. In fact AIFC is the only Christian counselling vocational education institution to be accredited by ACA, PACFA and is a member of ACPET.
