Curriculum

A description of the A.S.P. curriculum can now be found here. It describes the classes that the A.S.P. Faculty has been giving for many years. We have organized the basic ones into a two-year program of six courses designed especially for beginners; and have listed the more advanced ones separately. Often, however, some more advanced students sign up for one or the other of the beginners. courses in order to brush up on that area. The other courses listed offer a wide variety in many advanced and specialized fields. Our classes offer most of the requirements for passing NCGR's four-level certification program.

Library

A.S.P. maintains a library of over 170 books that are available to members.  For more information, please see our book listing and borrowing policy.
