  • If I am already in active deliverance ministry can I skip or waive some courses?

  • How long will my training last?

    That is up to you. You can progress as rapidly or slowly as you wish. Since the School is new, we don’t yet have average times for completion.

  • What languages are available for ISE training?

    Currently, we only have training in English but will expand to other languages as time and resources allow.

    Yes. Each course completion requires the student to answer a questionnaire and also submit answers in essay format. If you don’t pass you can take the course an additional time and be retested without further cost.

    At the end of your course study, your performance will be evaluated in both written and verbal formats and a determination made as to your acceptability for certification.

  • Is there a discount for pastors or those in full time Christian service?

    We anticipate that those involved in ministry will be our primary students; therefore to maintain the financial integrity of our mission we are not able to offer discounts with our opening enrollments.

  • Are there discounts for family members?

    Unfortunately, the cost of materials, time, and processing are the same for each person so no discounts for family members are available. However, special arrangements can be made for churches who want to train a group of qualified individuals.

  • Are there additional costs for attendance at Rev. Larson’s seminars and overseas missions?

    Yes, those who advance to the Exorcist Level will be required to attend certain seminars for face-to-face evaluation and observational hands-on experience. Overseas missions would also be helpful to attain certification in some cases.

  • What are the age requirements?

    Anyone 18-years-old or older is eligible. Minors 16-years-old or older require legal, parental permission and adult supervision.

  • Who may take these courses?

    The courses are open to everyone of legal age; however, certification requires adherence to our Statement of Faith and Doctrine (based on historic, orthodox Christian creeds) and our Statement of Ethics and Practices.

  • How soon can I begin?

    Enrollment is currently open with the first courses scheduled to start May 1, 2013.

    A working knowledge of computers and smart mobile devices would be helpful, since School information and courses will be available in such formats; however, for those who prefer, hard, paper copies of all materials are available upon request.

  • Is it possible to audit some of the classes without proceeding to certification?

    No. Enrollment recommends that the student’s motives be directed toward certification. Individual students may decide at any point to take the Courses for personal education and may at their discretion not proceed to full certification.

  • Is there any trial or introductory course which may be sampled?

    It is the School’s view that the teachings of Rev. Larson are so widely disseminated through books, videos and the Internet that any student could be reasonably aware of the nature of the training and evaluate it accordingly.

  • Should I go through deliverance before enrolling in the School?

    We recommend that all prospective students arrange for a Personal One-On-One Spiritual Encounter with Rev. Larson. It is not a requirement but will be invaluable to understanding the processes which will be taught and to be spiritually prepared for the instruction to be received. An Encounter can be arranged at the time of enrollment or any time prior by calling our offices at 303-980-1511 or going online to www.boblarson.org.

  • What qualifies Rev. Larson to establish this school and training?

    Rev. Bob Larson has been recognized as the world’s leading authority on cults, the occult, and exorcism. His 32 books have been translated into more than a dozen languages and his ministry spans nearly four decades. Several of his books and training videos are used for curriculum in leading universities and seminaries.
