Logos Training Resources

Logos Bible software is provided to all current students in programs and taking classes for credit at Western Seminary. We want you to be able to use the software well in your study and preparation for ministry. Below are some resources that we have created and some other great links that we have found that will help you learn to use the software effectively.

Upcoming Live Logos Training Sessions

  • Logos 101 Online: Getting Started 
    Next Date: TBA
    It is very important for students to have a basic understanding of how Logos works. This training will enable you to access the books, tools, and features you need efficiently by teaching the essentials needed to effectively navigate Logos, create a custom study layout and use Logos guides for quick access to a wealth of information. 

  • Logos 102 Online: Research and Writing 
    Next Date: TBA
    You have been equipped with a significant number of theological works designed to help you as a student and in ministry. You need to learn how to find books that help you accomplish different tasks, and you need to know how to efficiently find information in those books. This training will help you discover how Logos can support you in the research process. 

  • Logos 103 Online: Original Language Tools 
    Next Date: TBA
    Studying the original languages is no easy task, but it enables you to dig deeper and have more confidence in your understanding of the text. Logos is designed to support you in this and make difficult tasks more accessible. In this training, you will learn how to set Logos up to interact with the original languages, do text criticism, and run basic to complex searches.
