What is the difference between a course and a workshop?
Certificates are issued to recognize that students have delved into an area of study with more depth than can be offered by a single course. Most certificates require successful completion of 30 weeks of instruction.
If students want to hone their interpretative skills, they generally begin with the four natal studies courses (W101, W102, W103, and W104) in the certificate Astrological Fundamentals: Natal Astrology.

These courses are designed for students who want more than a casual astrological education and are serious about improving their skills. You can participate whether or not you can attend the live sessions (they are recorded for later review) or have the time to do all the work. Only those students who want to earn credits toward a specific Certificate or the Professional Diploma in Astrology need to successfully complete the required assignments.
The Fundamentals of Natal Astrology series begins with Fundamentals I: W101 An Introduction. This course gives students an understanding of the core symbols of the natal chart and the skills to layer them into a solid basic interpretation (a chart interpretation using just what they have learned is the final exam). The following courses in this series build on the core material to ensure students understand how to further synthesize and layer various techniques into an insightful and coherent natal chart interpretation, including being able to respond to common client questions. The Fundamentals series has six core courses essential for any astrological practice: four in natal chart interpretation and two covering a range of forecasting and prediction techniques.
All of our courses are open to interested individuals, although more advanced courses may require a specific level of astrological expertise to follow the material. If you do want to earn recognition for your effort:
