I for N Perth is registered with the Australian Skills Quality Authority to deliver accredited courses to Australian and overseas students and, as such, operates in accordance with those high standards for provision of training and assessment.

What Makes Us Unique

Focused and Flexible Training

Training within the IforN is in a modular structure, where you only do one program at a time. This provides intensive focus as well as flexibility for you to select exactly what you need to be equipped for what God has called you to.

Broad Scope

As a missions training organisation, we see equal validity to professions, unreached people groups, and geographical regions as domains needing the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Training for Everyone

We encourage and train the young as well as the more experienced, who are considering a new career to serve the world for Christ's sake.

More Than Just Information

With our training, our aim is to nurture students as a whole person, not just as a head to be filled with information. You learn in a discipling environment, where growth in character and walking in the ways of God are fundamental.

Immediate Application

Most courses offer a variety of guest instructors and professionals, teaching in their area of expertise. Theory and "hands-on" practice are blended, both in courses as well as on outreaches, field assignments, and internships, emphasising service now, rather than after two or four years of study .
