The Certified Herbal Consultant Program (CHC) is for anyone who wants to become an herbalist and help people heal as a full- or part-time business. It includes all of the courses in the Family Herbalist Certification program and adds courses that increase a person’s knowledge of herbs, their chemistry and actions, and how to apply them. Most importantly, it teaches basic assessment skills that enable you to determine which herbal remedies a person needs without diagnosing and prescribing.
The CHC course also provides business training to show you how to set up, promote and manage your consulting business. We also provide graduates with a dedicated forum where they can obtain assistance with client cases and business-building questions from other CHC graduates.
The course is taught over an 18 month period, but most of the classes can be taken in any order. All classes can be purchased separately or as a package.
You do not have to be able to attend the live webinars to complete the course. All webinars are recorded and can be downloaded and watched at any time. They are also available in mp3 format for listening to on any smart phone or mp3 player.
Completing the program will require about 335 hours of study and all of the classes can be completed online, studying at your own pace. All quizzes and assigments are submitted online, and you get immediate feedback on what questions you got right and wrong, so you can redo the quiz for a better score.
