The foundation module is Dynamics of Biblical Change and it is recommended that all students take this module first. It is a course about people. It is about how people change into the “image of Jesus Christ.” It helps to understand how lasting change begins in the heart, and is the result of understanding how the Gospel – Christ’s past, present, and future grace – applies to how we live our daily lives. The truths of Scripture provide life-giving answers to questions such as: What are you facing? What should you be like? Why do you do what you do? How do you change? How should you live now?
Helping Relationships is the other really foundational class, recommended to take second. Other subjects offered include Counseling in the Local Church, Biblical Interpretation, Counseling and Physiology, and Marriage Counseling.
These and other classes are offered three times per year (January, May, and September). Please note that registration closes approximately one month prior to the new classes.

We recognise that the cost of purchasing textbooks for CCEF modules can be expensive. Equip holds a small library of books together with a list of students who are willing to lend their books out. If you would like to borrow books for your course please email ccef [at] equip.org.my. To learn more about our library and how to register to borrow, click here.
If you prefer to purchase your own copy of books we do advise you do this as early as possible, particularly if local bookshops do not stock your titles. Books ordered from overseas can often take several weeks to arrive.
