FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is I.K.I. a Bible School or Seminary?
No. The I.K.I. is a continuing education organization.
Why would I attend the I.K.I. if it is not a Bible College or Seminary?
Traditionally, the study of the Kingdom has been confined to weekend workshops or conferences, which can only serve to familiarize its attendees with such an extensive topic as the Kingdom. Bible colleges, Bible schools and other training institutions, generally do not provide any in-depth or progressive instruction on the Kingdom. The Kingdom being a dominant theme throughout the Bible it is difficult, if not impossible, to truly be educated in the Bible without a solid understanding of God's Kingdom. The I.K.I. provides its students the opportunity to not only become familiar with the Kingdom, but equipped to competently teach it as well.
The I.K.I. is not designed to compete with the traditional providers of instruction in the Bible, such as Bible college, Bible schools, seminaries and other training organizations, but to supplement this instruction with a Kingdom Conscious and focused curriculum.
How is I.K.I. different from other Bible Colleges, Bible Schools, seminaries and other religious training institutions?
The I.K.I. is not a Bible College, Bible School or seminary. It is a Kingdom Conscious training institution specifically designed to provide in-depth instruction in God’s Kingdom and to enhance and supplement the training provided Bible colleges, schools and seminaries.
The IKI strives to not only educate its students on the Kingdom, but develop their awareness of the presence, priority and reality of the Kingdom throughout scriptures and its corresponding impact upon their identity, theology and worldview.
What denomination is I.K.I. affiliated with?
The I.K.I. is a non denominational entity and therefore is not affiliated with any particular denomination. I.K.I. adheres to foundational Christian beliefs.
What is the I.K.I. Continuing Education Unit (CEU)?
Ten (10) traditional classroom clock hours (60 minutes) = 1 CEU. Per standards recognized by The International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET); One Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is defined as 10 contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction.
How are the CEUs for my coursework calculated?
I.K.I. establishes its CEU by identifying the standard number of contact hours it takes the average learner to complete a curriculum. For example, the I.K.I. selects a representative sample of students to complete the learning program. Each student records the actual amount of time spent completing the curriculum. The number of hours spent by the students are totaled, averaged, and divided by 10 to determine the appropriate number of CEUs for that program.
Will my certification or CEUs be accepted by other schools or organizations?
Acceptance of I.K.I. CEUs for college credit is at the discretion of the college or university. CEUs are different from college credits; thus, I.K.I. cannot assure you that they are accepted by any specific organization. Most colleges will not directly accept CEUs for college or graduate credit. However, some colleges and universities will look at an individual's portfolio that includes work experience and continuing education and training offerings (measured by CEUs).
What is the purpose of the CEU?
The primary purpose of the CEU is to provide a permanent record of the educational accomplishments of an individual who has completed one or more significant non-credit educational experiences.
Can I.K.I. CEUs be awarded for partial credit?
No. A participant must successfully complete the entire curriculum before any CEUs are issued.
How much time will I spend on coursework?
In a three credit hour course, you should expect to spend an average of 6-9 hours per week on your course work. Depending on your speed of reading and the number of particular assignments for course, you will be online approximately 2-3 hours a week. This time may be decreased if you download documents and read them offline and may be increased if you participate extensively in additional discussion board conversations.
Do I have to be online at any specific time?
The way our courses are set up, you do not need to be online at any particular time. However, the software we use for the online school is interactive. You will have a chance to communicate with the other students and the instructor. Communication is mostly through e-mails and discussion boards, so you can get online at the time most convenient for you.
How do I get textbooks?
