All learners are required to take The Word of God (1) class as their first course in the program. Other than that, unless a course has a prerequisite, you do not have to take courses in any particular order. Some courses in the program are offered in a sequence based on parcels. A parcel is two or three courses within a major course topic (for example, The Body of Christ) that cover the same sub-topic, earlier courses in the parcel being prerequisite to later courses. A detailed description of course parcels and which courses they apply to can be viewed here: https://onlineftta.org/mod/resource/view.php?id=13501.
