Q. I wonder if your courses are accredited? Are they worth my time?
Israel Bible Center offers open enrolment and does not grant formal degrees as Universities do. Thus the center does not qualify for accreditation which is required only for traditional institutions such as Colleges and Seminaries. The center recognizes student achievement with a Certificate in Jewish Context and Culture backed by the high caliber of scholars and teachers involved with the center representing both Israeli and International universities.
