FAA Accredited Teachers are members who fulfil the requirements listed below. They have been approved by the National Council and are entitled to use the letters AAT (FAA) to denote such qualification provided they remain a member of an affiliated association.
Within each state there are teachers working towards attaining AAT status and using the FAA Exam syllabus in preparation for the FAA Exams. The best way to discover who may be teaching astrology in your area is to go to the Association of Professional Astrologers website (www.apainc.org.au) and search under the Directory link.
To gain an AAT, one must hold an FAA Diploma of Astrology, and have successfully taught a minimum of six students through the Calculation and Interpretation examinations. In those cases where two people are teaching in partnership, both must hold an FAA Diploma and eight students from the teaching partnership must successfully complete the Calculation and Interpretation examinations.
