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.
Guidelines for Schools in NCGR-PAA’s Equivalency Program
As part of NCGR-PAA’s equivalency requirements, all schools and organizations included in our program have submitted documentation on their overall curriculum, specific courses of study, number of instructors, students enrolled, and other pertinent information. Those distinguished schools and organizations currently included in our Equivalency Program are listed on our main Certification page.
How Schools or Other Educational Programs Qualify for NCGR-PAA Equivalency
NCGR-PAA’s equivalency program allows students to enter our four-level certification program at a higher level than if they were entering the program with no previous study. Specific coursework or certification at a qualified school may allow the student to test as high as Level IV in NCGR-PAA’s program.
Following are the requirements for schools and other organizations to apply for equivalency in our certification program.
