How do I set my time zone?

All of your assignments are due at the end of the day in your time zone. It is very important to set your time zone correctly. The time zone setting is located on your profile page. You can set it in the following way: Log in to your account and click on your name in the upper right hand corner of your screen. On your profile page click on the "Edit profile" tab and scroll down to "Timezone." This is where you set your time zone. If you do not set your time zone properly, your assignments may be marked late. For information on which time zone to enter, please see: What timezone should I select?

How long is each course?

Each course is eight weeks long.

How long will it take to complete all the courses?

The FTTA-OL program offers five terms per year, and there are thirty courses in the program. If you were to take one course per term, it would take about six years to complete them all. That being said, FTTA-OL is designed with the view that most learners will take one or two courses per year for the next fifteen to thirty years. By the Lord’s mercy, we all will be in His move and His ministry for the rest of our lives, and we hope that many believers will spend these years studying God’s Word and being constituted with the divine truth.

How much does it cost to take a course?

Each course costs US$200.00. Each term the deadline date for early registration is posted on the FTTA-OL site:

How much time do I need to spend each week in the course?

The classes in FTTA-OL require a minimum of one hour per day and typically can take as many as 10 to 15 hours per week. FTTA-OL classes are asynchronous; that is, you do not have to be online when your fellow-learners are online or at particular times during the week. You can work on the lessons and do the assignments any time, day or night, according to your schedule, as long as they are submitted by the required deadlines. But in order to succeed, you should plan to be online at least one hour per day.
