Feng Shui is the art of creating environments that support the mind, body and soul. Utilising the principles of form, compass and flying star school, geomancy and the ancient art of space clearing, learners will gain the knowledge and the skills to transform a house into a home that supports the vision of the occupants.
ACES has provided Feng Shui training since 1999. The 11079NAT Certificate IV in Feng Shui is the only nationally accredited Feng Shui course in Australia that provides the knowledge and the skills to conduct professional Feng Shui assessments. Our graduates were instrumental in establishing the Association of Feng Shui Consultants and the International Feng Shui Association (Australia).
Students must be at least 18 years of age.
The course is ten months full time (two years part time) consisting of six subjects (four core and two elective subjects) which is almost 800 hours in duration. The entire course is conducted online with some subjects requiring live zoom sessions on Wednesday evenings (there is no on-campus field training). Students should expect to spend around ten hours per week for each subject in self-directed study time over a twelve week period. A trainer is allocated to each student. Students may choose to complete a subject more quickly if they dedicate more hours per week in study time as they will have access to all of the course materials from the day of enrolment. Whilst there is no order in which to enrol into subjects, most students begin with the Feng Shui Foundations subject. Part time students are expected to complete a minimum of three subjects per year, whilst full time students are expected to complete six subjects in ten months. Four online subjects that can be started at any time of the year include: Feng Shui Foundations, Healthy Home, Decluttering and Chinese Astrology. Three subjects that involve live zoom sessions on Wednesday evenings include: Advanced Feng Shui, Sacred Space and Geomancy. Timetable below. Click here for the Subject and Unit Mapping Guide.
