An Authorized Training Site is any location that trains leaders by using the LTI System ™

An Authorized Training Site may be a church, school, non-profit organization, college, or a Christian business.

  • An Authorized Training Site uses the LTI Curriculum to teach leaders in a group setting.
  • The program is not currently designed for individual self-study.
  • A group of instructors get certified to teach the LTI Curriculum by completing LTI’s Certification process.
  • An Authorized Training Site follows the LTI guidelines, scheduling options, and training measurements outlined by LTI’s Client Support function.
  • To date, LTI has helped establish 125 Authorized Training Sites in over 30 nations, training thousands of leaders in the USA and overseas.



3) What is the LTI System?

  • The LTI System ™ is the name of LTI’s training method. It is an integrated three part method that produces highly effective training results.
  • The LTI System ™ provides your own church-based or non-profit leadership institute or serves as a part of a college-based degree program.


The LTI System ™ includes three components:

1) Curriculum – The 12 module LTI training curriculum.
