Classroom education is offered at various churches and has the advantage of in-person discussion and interaction. Course offerings can be arranged at a location where a group of students (10 or more) register for the course. Berkshire provides a qualified instructor to guide the learning sessions. In some cases, several churches cooperate together to offer a LLC course. Additionally, “hybrid” offerings may be a part of the local learning centers, where some of the course work is done online.
