HOW WE DELIVER OUR COURSES

After your order payment has been processed you will receive a link by email to download your course materials. Some courses require a second purchase of the eBook from an independent vendor such as Christian Book.com or Amazon.

WHICH PLATFORMS DO WE USE?

All eWorkbooks are PDF's and viewable on any computer using Adobe Reader. eBook platforms vary. We do our best to find them for most types of eReaders.

Kindle Users note: Not all course titles offered as ebooks are available from Amazon. In this case, you will need to use your computer to read the book. If this is not satisfactory, you may select another course or, order the course in print format, or ask for a refund (eWorkbook only).

If you purchase the book from a vendor not given by us, or already have the book, you are responsible to determine if you have the correct publication. The book title and author is not enough due to publishers producing multiple variations of the same book.
