Online Certificates

PTC offers two certificate level courses with introductory studies in Bible, Theology, Church History, Ethics, and Practical Ministry:

  • The ASTC or Academic Studies in Theology Certificate
  • Certificate in Theology.

Both are certificates awarded by the Australian College of Theology, and both can be completed entirely online, entirely on-campus, or a mixture of online and on-campus. The ASTC only is an approved course for Centrelink benefits such as Austudy. Centrelink requires 75% of full time study, which is 3 units per semester.
