    Greetings all!

    I was looking at the Grand Chapter's website and found out that the Grand Chapter and Grand Council both award certificates of proficiency.

    Can anyone detail what is required knowledge for these certificates? Is it similar to the Blue Lodge certificates?

    Thank you.

    I think the only way to get one is to attend the Grand Chapter/Council School of Instruction.

    No , you do not need to go to SOIs' . I have my proficiency in both bodies . The District Deputy (or other Grand Line officers) can test your knowledge during inspections at your local Chapter/Council . They will watch from the sidelines while performing opening/closing and degree work and then take you off to the side to test you further . Nothing to it , just a little studying .

    But studying what, exactly? Does it include knowledge of all the degree work? Just the opening and closing?
