    According to article 493 of the GLoTX Law book all Master Masons since 1996 should have completed a program approved by the education committee (ALL Program).

    Art. 439. (476). Examination in Master’s Degree.
    1. Within ninety days after he is raised, a Brother shall have
    heard the fourth portion of The Lodge System of Candidate
    Information, shall have received all four booklets which comprise
    the System, be certified as having completed a Grand Lodge
    approved course in Masonic Information under the supervision
    of the Committee on Masonic Education and Service
    , and shall
    have been examined in open Lodge and voted as proficient in
    the entire trial lecture of the Master’s Degree. (Revised 1996)

    This is just a portion of the law. There is more to the article.

    I got tired of making copies so last night I scanned it in to a pdf format here you go. I am also working on a PowerPoint to go along with it. Does anyone have anything other than this that they use?

    ALL Handbook
    ALL Workbook

    You should have asked... Ive got the ALL (both) the LIFE (all three) and made up a handbook for each of the LIFE books so the students could keep the LIFE books without having to turn them in to me or the other lodge councilor for checking and their records...

    Brother Wingnut,
    My dad is the all and life officer of our lodge and he takes our new Masons through the program. If i remember right it gives a candidate basic knowledge of masonic law.

    The link that Bro. Wyndell gave me for the ALL program is the older version. The one I have posted, although it is out of date as well, is the most current version.

    Either one will suffice your needs. I have taken things from the old and added to the new, along with other information that is lodge specific and put it all into a Powerpoint. I should be able to complete it and post it by Monday.
