The NCGR-Professional Astrologers' Alliance (NCGR-PAA) serves 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. It also raises the standards of the field for both students and teachers. The educational program is designed to structure one's astrological studies, and is equivalent to a four-year college curriculum leading to a bacculaurate degree.

There are four certification levels of astrological knowledge. Briefly, they are:

LEVEL I: provides the foundation of knowledge of western, or tropical, astrology. Topics include basic astronomy, chart calculation, meanings of planets, signs, houses, major aspects and application of this understanding to chart interpretation.

LEVEL II: builds on the previous material to encompass minor aspects, lunar phases, derived houses, fixed stars, dynamic elements of astrology, such as transits and progressions, and more advanced calculations.

LEVEL III: introduces the 90º and 360º dials, covers horary and electional astrology, synastry, solar and lunar returns, and the history of astrology.

LEVEL IV: consolidates the information gained in the previous levels and adds rectification. Whenever rectification is passed, the student may specialize in consulting, general research, technical research, or instructor.
