The Course begins with brief lessons covering the techniques used in the second, much longer part of the course. Each lesson is completed and corrected before moving on to the next. An index is compiled for a section of Lilly's book. The student moves from exercises in basic horary to a way of research into study of earlier authorities of every sort of astrology.
By the end of the course you should be able to make an accurate, verifiable prediction from a horary chart. This, together with continual assessment throughout the course, replaces a final examination. After demonstrating that your work has reached a professional standard, you will be awarded a Diploma entitling you to use the initials Q.H.P. - Qualified Horary Practitioner.
