About Training

There are a variety of training courses available year-round. YWAM’s foundational course, which serves as the prerequisite for all other training programs, is called the Discipleship Training School (YWAM DTS). Most YWAM courses can be combined into degree programs through YWAM’s University of the Nations.

YWAM courses, often called “schools,” combine theory with practical application. They usually last between three and nine months. For many YWAM students, the intensive learning combined with community living makes for a transformational experience.

*Austudy, Abstudy and Youth Student Allowance is available for approved Australian applicants.
