Certified Herbalist Training – Program Three

The Institute of Chinese Herbology is proud to offer the Chinese Herbology Certification Program.  

The completion of Program Three: The ICH Certified Herbalist Training Program is the culmination of the study of Chinese Herbology presented in this series of online TCM Courses offered by The Institute of Chinese Herbology. 

This is the capstone course, offering one-on-one instruction in the art and science of Traditional Chinese Medicine with a specific focus on the use of Traditional Chinese Herbal formulas in the treatment of almost any medical condition. 

With this knowledge, you will know how to treat health imbalances with herbs in the most effective and holistic manner. You will be able to add the use and prescription of Chinese Herbs to your existing Alternative Medical Practice, or feel confident in starting a career in Alternative Medicine. 

Our Online Classes in Traditional Chinese Medicine are recognized by the California State Acupuncture Board (CEUs) and The National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).

Students are then given the opportunity to observe the effects of their formulas on their own patients by writing their own cases, patient diagnostics, formulas, and outcomes. Your instructor will provide one-on-one guidance and evaluation of your case studies for your further education.

After completion of Program Three, you will become a Certified Herbalist and will receive an Institute of Chinese Herbology Certified Herbalist Certificate.
