The Franciscan Way Requirements

Technical Requirements

You must have reliable access to a Windows or Mac desktop or laptop computer as well as the Web throughout the duration of the course. While iPads, phones, and other mobile devices may allow you to access some of the course content, the CAC will not be able to assist you with issues you encounter on mobile devices.

Before registering, please ensure that your computer meets the requirements of the online platform. Online course registrations are nonrefundable.

Computer Skills

The Franciscan Way online course is 100% online. In order to make the most of what the course offers, we strongly encourage you to have, at the very least, basic computer and Web navigation skills; the ability to copy and paste, while not absolutely required, will be very helpful as well.

Technical support for the online instruction platform is available during the first week through the Help Forum and throughout the rest of the course via email at There is no provision for technical support over the phone.


The Franciscan Way online course is entirely in English. You will benefit most if you have strong English reading and writing skills.

Cancellation Policy

Online course registrations are non-refundable. Registration occurs at the moment the course is purchased online. Please ensure you are comfortable with the structure and dates of the course, and have the skills and equipment required to participate before you register.
