The Novice rank is the first utilized at the Institute for Jedi Realist Studies. This rank signifies a Jedi with a basic understanding of the breadth of the Jedi path. The information is gained through the 101 level of courses or in equivalent independent study. It also includes 50 hours of Integrative Practice which is training outside the course work, primarily offline such as fitness, volunteer work, healing training, etc.
At this level we look primarily at knowledge which the student is beginning to apply in their daily life. In addition the student should have a positive training attitude with the intent to act as a Jedi to the best of their abilities.
