Companion Adept of the Temple course

The York Rite Sovereign College of North America has developed a self-study course on the York Rite. The course is titled "Companion Adept of the Temple" and consists of a series of self-study open-book exams over the degrees of the York Rite. There are no additional textbooks to buy: all of the study information is available on-line through free google books or web pages.

I just finished the first exam which covered the Mark Master and Past Master degree. I found the questions to be challenging; this is not a simple test in which you look it up and repeat it back. Students need to interpret what they read and apply the information to Masonic concepts in order to successfully complete the exam. At least I think I was successful- we'll see once it's checked and returned!

More information on the course can be found at Chris Hodapp's Freemasons for Dummies blog. The enrollment form is in pdf and is available here at the York Rite Sovereign College of North America website.
