Join the waiting list for our NEXT CIA ONLINE 2024!

>>This course filled up after one week two years in a row. Students on the waiting list will get first chance to enroll!

Have you heard about the amazing training at the CrossExamined Instructor’s Academy (CIA)? Perhaps you’ve wanted to go for a while but have never been able to make it happen due to the travel and time away involved.

We have an exciting announcement to make!

We are bringing CIA to you online. While this by no means perfectly replicates the live experience, we’ve done our best to recreate something more accessible to students.

This 7-week CERTIFICATE COURSE BUNDLE offers A LOT! 19 pre-recorded presentations plus 3 BONUS presentations from 11 different instructors. These presentations are designed to increase your apologetics knowledge and greatly improve your presentation skills. These recordings are available for you to watch and rewatch as much as you wish for 1 year. Each video session is accompanied with a list of recommended resources, course commentary, and questions and answer keys.

In addition, you'll have the opportunity to give two of your own presentations and be critiqued by two of our expert instructors and your peers. Take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hone your presentation and question answering skills.

Also included are the always popular Zoom sessions. You will attend 6 LIVE Zoom Sessions. Our instructors combine decades of public speaking experience and apologetics knowledge and share with you their best instruction and advice.

Not interested in giving a presentation or receiving certification? We ask that you still participate in the other course components as your participation in your group works as iron sharpening iron.

  • When do the live sessions take place for the PREMIUM course?

Schedule for 2024 coming soon!

  • How many students are in the course?

We are accepting 24 students. Keeping the class small will provide a great personal opportunity to interact with the instructors.

  • What type of payments do you accept?

Currently we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and check cards (as long as they are connected with one of the major credit card companies listed above) as well as PayPal.

  • Your information is safe and secure.

In order to ensure security, all payments are processed through or PayPal. These are highly secure and use industry-leading technology (such as SSL) to keep your information safe.

  • Can one person enroll in the course and multiple people attend the Zoom session with the student?

Unfortunately, due to copyright, privacy and security issues the answer to this question is NO.  We understand the desire to share these awesome sessions in this manner, but each course is a “closed” course.  This means that each student enrolled in a course with LIVE recorded sessions, through their enrollment, has given permission for recording of the Zoom sessions for use by the student’s in their enrolled class ONLY and verified that they are not a minor.   To remain GDPR compliant and protect privacy and security, we authenticate each student joining our Zoom meetings. This privacy is also sought to create a place where our students get to know the others in their group and feel comfortable in sharing personal thoughts and questions.
