Course Description and Registration Form:

THEO 695 BASIC CATECHIST CERTIFICATION COURSE: The Basic Catechist Course is intended to equip beginning catechists with sufficient background knowledge and skills to begin teaching. It centers around the four dimensions that should be developed and balanced within a catechist:  the catechist as an individual, theology, characteristics of learners, and teaching methods. Topics of discussion include the spirituality of the catechist, overviews of scripture, of Catholic morality, of Church history, and of liturgy and the sacraments, among others. The course also includes discussion of child/adolescent development, various teaching methods, and session planning and management. Some experiences outside of class are required. This course follows the curriculum of the Archdiocese of Atlanta as outlined in the document “Communicating the Catholic Message,” except Safe Environment Training which should be completed at one’s local parish/school.

(1.5 credit hours; $735 for credit; audit fee $150)
