Dear CVA members,

The Council of Vedic Astrology unanimously agreed to resume the establishment of certification standards of Vedic astrologers that the CVA started under the direction of Dr. David Frawley, then President of the council in 1993. The current CVA certification standards are a continuation of the original council based tutor model, in which students mentor with a CVA recognized professional practitioner and tutor of their choice to fulfill the necessary requirements for testing and certification with the CVA. The council was the first membership organization to set up standards in the west.

The CVA has developed the Jyotish Visharada and Jyotish Kovid certification exams that se the international standards for CVA certification under the direction of the CVA Certification Committee guided by Dr. David Frawley, Chakrapani Ullal, Nalini Kanta Das, James Kelleher, Dennis Flaherty and Sat Siri Khalsa who is the CVA Exam Provost.

Please visit our national and international list of CVA Certified Teachers and Practitioners on our website to find a current CVA certified teacher and practitioners in your area. All CVA certified teachers and practitioners instruction qualifies for certification with the CVA if membership is current. Once professional membership is expired or not renewed instruction going forward is not recognized by the CVA. Please view the CVA certification page to peruse and familiarize yourself with CVA’s certification requirements, as well as the dates of upcoming CVA exams.
