Catholic Faith Technology:

images (1)Catholic Faith Technology is far more than an online course. It is a platform that also houses the Certification Management System. Our system tracks and stores progress, reports, and certifications for yourself, your students, and/or your catechists. It also enables group administrators to post notifications and discussions for their groups or classes. In other words, paper trails and file cabinets are a thing of the past! Administrators are now able to create and manage their classes 24/7 with the ease and click of a button.

Our courses provide in-depth learning programs and video tutorials on the web for all levels of knowledge of the Catholic faith. This is accomplished by combining Catholic content with innovative technology. It is the ideal program for a teacher or a catechist looking for resources and courses, and for a Catholic who simply wants a better understanding of the faith. These fantastic courses are available on the Internet anytime, anywhere-making learning convenient and fun. Our dynamic courses feature engaging lessons, interactive activities, games, voiceovers, and immediate assessments that give real-time feedback on learner progress. Many of our courses are available in Spanish, as well!
