The courses above comprise our main diploma curriculum. For a much more-detailed explanation of our process, as well as syllabi for all of the courses, please see these pages. You can use the links above to register for courses which are currently open for registration.

Many courses in the Professional Training Department are also available to audit. When offered, you can audit a course for a lower tuition fee if you do not require the course for credit to graduate. When you audit a course, you are not required to do homework or pass any exams, but you also will not receive any credit. If a course is available to audit, a separate registration button will be available on the registration page. Use the correct button to register, depending on whether you need the credit or not. Not all courses offer the audit option.

Join Diane Trimbath to learn about new opportunities or “shifts of focus” in store for us each month, as she reviews the energies coming in from our sky in IAA’s new monthly series, “A Look at the Month Ahead.” Find out how, when, and where these changes may influence YOUR life (based on your Sun sign). Diane will be holding these meetings once a month, but registration for each meeting is separate — you do not need to sign up for the entire series or make any long-term commitment.
