How long will it take to complete the Foundation Levels?

You progress at your own pace within The Arcanum. It may take as little as three months or as long as two years. Each person learns skills at a different rate, and everyone has different time commitments. Just like going to a dojo to learn Martial Arts, you will get out of it what you put into it. Also, very much like a dojo, your instructor may contact you to ensure you are coming to the dojo for your training!

What do I do after completing the Foundation Levels?

Some Apprentices may enjoy their experience at the Arcanum so much and gain so many new skills, that they will wish to bravely join the Focus Levels of The Arcanum.

After completion the Foundation Levels the Apprentice rests at Level 20. Higher-Level Masters invite the Apprentice to join The Focus Levels, which are grouped into Spheres. You can think of Spheres 2 and beyond as expansion packs in a game. Sphere 2, the first set of Focus Levels, takes you from Level 21 to Level 30. Sphere 3 takes you from Level 31 to Level 40. And so on.

How long will it take to progress through the Focus Levels within The Arcanum?

Programs within the Focus Levels may last three months or more, depending upon the Master and the Apprentice’s pace.

Is there an extra cost for the Focus Levels?

Yes. In addition to the monthly Membership Dues, there is a Tuition cost for each of the Focus Level Spheres. The cost of Tuition for each of the Focus Level Spheres depends upon the Sphere and the pricing the Master chooses. For example, Sphere 2 (Levels 20-30) may cost anywhere from $100 to $500. If you are unsatisfied with the experience within the Focus Levels, we offer a 100% money back guarantee.
