What are the courses like?
The courses are eight weeks long, with each week covering a different
section of material. You can take a look at a sample week here: https://onlineftta.org/course/view.php?id=78&78=1.
What are the requirements for participating in the FTTA-OL program?
There are both personal and technical requirements. You can see a list of program requirements here: https://onlineftta.org/mod/resource/view.php?id=3473.
What if I fail a course?
A learner who fails a course is required to retake that particular course and pass it in order to continue taking other FTTA-OL courses. However, due to the schedule of course offerings, the failed course may not be offered again immediately. In this case, the learner has the option to take other courses that are being offered while waiting for the failed course to be offered again. But when the failed course is offered again, the learner MUST retake it. If for any reason, the learner does not retake and pass the failed course the next time it is offered, he or she will not be permitted to take any other courses until he or she has taken and passed the failed course. Additionally, if the learner is waiting to retake a failed course and fails a different course, he or she will not be allowed to take any more courses until BOTH courses have been retaken and passed. This could require the learner to wait a period of time (without taking any classes) before the courses are offered again.
For example: I take the Body of Christ (1) course this term and fail it. In the next term this course is not being offered. Because of this, I can take any other course that is offered. I can continue to take any other courses that are offered as long as the Body of Christ (1) course is not offered. However, the next term that the Body of Christ (1) course is offered, I MUST retake it and pass. If for any reason I do not take the Body of Christ (1) course during the next term that it is offered, I can no longer take other courses until I retake the Body of Christ (1) course and pass it. If I fail another course while waiting for the Body of Christ (1) course to be offered, then I can no longer take any courses until both courses have been retaken and passed.
What is UTC?
UTC is "Universal Time Coodine," or "Coordinated Universal Time." It is a time zone.
What timezone should I select?
Because UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) does not take daylight saving time into account, we suggest that learners select a city which they know to be in their timezone. Cities are located in the top portion of the timezone drop-down menu and are arranged by continent/city. For example, if you live in Anaheim, you could select America/Los_Angeles. (On occasion the city may also be listed as continent/country/city or continent/state/city.) If you need any help selecting a timezone, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
