Department of Preliminary Education

Department of Preliminary Education

Are you new to astrology? Have you discovered that there is more to astrology than the Sun-sign column? Do you believe in astrology and would you like to expand your knowledge and ability to understand a chart?

The Department of Preliminary Education has been established for you. It is an independent section of the campus. These classes are created by Gary Caton. IAA is very proud to have the veteran astrology instructor Gary Caton on its staff. He has a gift for breaking down sophisticated concepts into practical everyday language which people can relate to and has successfully taught many beginning students in various on-line forums. His classes present the basics of astrology to the new student, and are the prefect platfrom/introduction for IAA's Professional Training Department

Here is what Gary's students have to say about his class....

It is an honor and an absolute pleasure to have the opportunity to learn from Gary Caton. In my opinion, he is one of the best and brightest minds in the field of astrology today, and he shares his tremendous wealth of knowledge generously. Gary brought certain concepts about traditional astrology, which previously existed only on paper to me, to life, and that has made me a better astrologer.

Gary has a passion for teaching and deep knowledge of astrology. He not only sees a flat chart but views the chart from the sky’s perspective which adds an extra dimension to his teachings. He is always prepared, organized and provides great illustrations to convey his points. I have learned a great deal from him and highly recommend him as a teacher.
