Disciples are not made overnight
It takes intentional learning in the context of accountable relationships to gain that type of influence. However, most pastors and leaders are overworked with little time to teach doctrine or design courses, let alone develop discipleship pathways, which is why PBC has become a strategic partner for pastors and churches to help create disciples and train leaders for His church worldwide.

What content is included in the audit course?

When are courses offered?
Audit courses are independent studies that can be started any day of the year! Simply click on the big orange button (above) to purchase with a card for immediate online access when you are ready to start.
What is included in the audit version of a course?
Every course has A LOT of content as they are the same lectures provided to students in the classroom! The majority of courses include at least 28 full lectures; each between 35-50mins. Students can download student notes and take notes while they are listening to professors. Audit students do not interact with other students, engage the teacher or have assignments.
How does an Audit courses differ from a course for credit?
Online audit courses operate as Independent Study where students can start anytime and work at their own pace. Students do not submit assignments or engage directly with the professor or other students.
If I change my mind, can I get credit for my audit course?
Credit is not granted after the fact. In order to get college credit, students need to enter a system of accountability and feedback for progress made and work completed. The audit system does not allow for that, therefore students desiring to get college credit, must apply and get accepted to PBC and register for courses.

How long do I get access to the course for?
If you sign up for a single course then you have access for 6 months. If you have a subscription then you have access until you cancel.
I need more time, how do I extend my access?
We definitely recommend that students access one course at a time due to the fact that each course has so much content! If life gets busy and you would like more time to go through the content, we are happy to extend access for one additional month at no additional cost to help you wrap up your course. Additional extensions can be provided at a greatly reduced rate to help you receive the full benefits of your purchase. Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request!
Can I download the course content?
All PBC courses offer comprehensive course notes, which included the points, scriptures and even charts and images that every student can download and keep when the course is done. However, students are not able to download the actual course lectures to their iPods or computers.
Can I watch the content on a mobile device?
Students must have a computer (PC or Mac) and access to a high-speed internet connection to stream videos and lectures. Some lectures should also play on mobile and tablet devices, but the PBC help desk is unable to provide technical support for those. The lectures will work on any browser, but we have found Firefox to provide the most consistent display.
