The Federation of Australian Astrologers (FAA) offers the opportunity to take astrological exams in order to achieve qualifications in astrology
The FAA offers two qualifications in astrology that are nationally and internationally recognised promoting professionalism within astrology. They are the FAA Diploma of Astrology – Dip Astro (FAA) and the FAA Advanced Diploma of Astrology – Ad Dip Astro (FAA).
FAA Diploma of Astrology — Dip Astro (FAA)
There are four exams that make up the Diploma of Astrology. Each exam may be attempted in any order and there is no time limit to complete all four. It is not necessary to successfully complete one assessment in order to do another. Any person may apply to sit an exam, the only requirement is that the candidate must be a financial member of an affiliated FAA association.
- Interpretation – offered annually in February
- Specialist Techniques & Relationship – offered biennially in May
- Calculation – offered annually in August
- Dynamic – offered annually in October
FAA Advanced Diploma of Astrology — Ad Dip Astro (FAA)
The Advanced Diploma is the highest academic honour given by the FAA. In order to apply for a Advanced Diploma the applicant must hold the FAA Diploma of Astrology (formerly Practitioner’s Certificate FAA). Candidates may apply at any time.
An Advanced Diploma is awarded:
- On the submission of a research thesis of your own choosing.
Candidates are asked to submit a synopsis of their thesis with their application, which is then judged by the Board as to its suitability. This is to avoid those subjects which are obviously invalid or inappropriate to the standard of the Diploma.
- On submission of a published work, or work that has contributed significantly to the standard of Australian astrology.
The applicant must again submit a synopsis of the work on application.
The thesis or work is judged by two Examiners who have some expertise in the field of the work submitted. If there is no member of the Board with such expertise, the work will be sent to recognised experts in that field for evaluation.
