Online Salvation Army Continuing Education Program (SACEP) Course offerings

The Salvation Army and ONU partnership is designed so that Salvation Army officers can continue the education they began at the CFOT. The Salvation Army Continuing Education Program (SACEP) equips officers with the skills needed to better serve in today’s changing communities, where they are called to serve.

Additionally, all SACEP courses align to one of the partnership bachelor degree programs. The credits accumulated from both CFOT and SACEP put an officer close to the completion of one of ONU’s partnership bachelor degrees. These courses are open to officers who are in their early years of officership or those who are seasoned officers and are interested in completing their degree at ONU.

In order to serve The Salvation Army officers in the best way possible, officers will complete an on-boarding introductory module, which introduces the Olivet Learning Management platform, Canvas. The on-boarding module (GNS-030 Introduction to College Studies) is a pre-requisite resource that provides an introduction to online expectations, basic skills and strategies of online learning, and online learning resources which support student success. Completing the module will require approximately 10-15 total hours of work. Students continue to have access to this module in their dashboard within in the learning management system.
