Kepler offers three types of educational opportunities:
The Kepler Certificate Program brings first-class instructors together with a varied selection of classes so that you can build your skills, whether you are a beginner or professional.
Are you interested in learning how astrologers work?
Are you a professional interested in adding to your skills?
Are you interested in learning with experts in the field?
Do you want more than memorization and a single point of view?
Do you want intensive in-depth instruction with instructor feedback?
If so, the Kepler Certificate Program is right for you.
The catalog of our intensive certificate courses is listed below. These courses are different than workshops - students will not only have regular live meetings, but an online course site where assignments, discussion forums and instructor feedback help them understand the material. You can take an individual course or a series, depending on your interests. Because of the time commitment with these intensive courses, most students take just a single course per term.
The core courses in the Fundamentals series are offered every term. Other courses may only be offered once per year. Please check our website or subscribe to our newsletter for the most up-to-date information.
For students who want to anchor their astrological knowledge in a well-rounded series of courses that: 1) grow their practical skills, 2) provide a broader understanding of astrology's history, and 3) expand their understanding of the philosophies that lead to different types of practice, there is a recommended path of courses.
It will take approximately 3-4 years to complet this series of courses if students take a single class each term. ISAR and NCGR (National Council for Geocosmic Research) lets students who have completed the this program to take Professional level exams without needing to take the previous exams. Kepler acknowledges the student's who complete this series with a badge for a Professional Diploma in Astrology.
This Diploma is designed for anyone who wants a broad overview of the history of astrology, its controversies, the links between astrology, astronomy and other fields, and various ways astrology has been and is being practiced.
