The IRBC Basic Training Course in Reformed Biblical Counseling is offered each year in various locations across the United States of America (and beyond). Men and women of all ages (post-high) have taken the course, learning how to be better equipped to minister to suffering people with truth from God's Word in a holistic manner. Many have spoken about how the course also challenged them and grew them in their walk with Christ. The course meets once per week (besides holidays/breaks) for two hours, and involves students watching prerecorded lectures on various counseling-related topics, as well as watching counseling observation sessions (second semester), wherein one can see what a counseling session might look like. Homework is also assigned, and involves reading three books, reading various articles, and watching short videos at home. Students that attend (or makeup) all the lectures and do all the assigned homework receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course.
