Statement of Purpose
The mission of the NCGR-Professional Astrologers' Alliance is to serve as a trade association to promote the common interests of astrologers and to improve the status of the profession of astrology primarily through the implementation of a certification program, the promotion of high ethical standards in the practice of astrology, as well as any other matters relevant to the professional astrologer.
History of NCGR-PAA's Certification Program
NCGR's Education and Certification Program, recognized internationally for its rigor and excellence since 1979, has been one of NCGR's cherished achievements. With the 2008 formation of the NCGR-Professional Astrologers' Alliance (NCGR-PAA), NCGR's prior certification program has been transferred to PAA in its entirety, thus continuing NCGR's historical educational program begun more than a quarter of a century ago.
The NCGR-PAA will now administer the 4 Levels of certification testing based on the same educational curriculum as before and as found in the Education Curriculum and Study Guide for Certification Testing. To order a copy of the Study Guide, click here.
Your Path to Certification
Our newly updated Study Guide for 2015 encompasses all four levels of NCGR-PAA's Certification Program. It includes new material on traditional, Hellenic, Vedic, Chinese and Mesoamerican schools of astrology.
