The Certificate in Holistic Aromatherapy course is a relatively new and completely revised beginner aromatherapy course. It is designed for the beginner to aromatherapy with a comprehensive introduction for the safe and effective use of essential oils at home and for family use. It is a stand-alone course from the Certificate in Professional Aromatherapy which is more in-depth with college type essay-style assignments to complete.
The Certificate in Holistic Aromatherapy course is for:
No prior experience is needed to take the Certificate in Holistic Aromatherapy course. The course is divided into eight modules with a total of thirty lessons. At the end of each lesson, there is a table or short answer question to complete. At the end of each module, there is a practical project to complete. As this is an introductory course, there are no essays or reading assignments to complete. However, it is required that you purchase Authentic Aromatherapy by Sharon Falsetto to complete some of the assignments. The aim of the Certificate in Holistic Aromatherapy course is to make learning fun – but to also obtain a comprehensive education in aromatherapy while doing so!
You can see the full content of the course below. As a special note, Module Eight (see below) is an introduction to business issues with regard to labeling, language, ethics, and scope of practice. This module sets you up for further study or gives you enough information to understand what to look out for when buying your own aromatherapy products, even if you don’t intend to sell your own products.
If you want to take the certificate to meet the requirements of NAHA Level 1 Certified Aromatherapist®, you will also need to complete Module Nine (available for purchase separately). This is an assessment module which requires the successful completion of five case studies (over a minimum period of three months), a five to ten page research paper on aromatherapy, and a multi-choice exam.
The course is fully supported with one-on-one tutoring and mentoring from experienced, UK-certified aromatherapist and published author and editor, Sharon Falsetto, access to a student-only Facebook group, and a bi-monthly student newsletter. Further support via phone or skype at an additional charge. Custom on-site tutoring for practical blending is available at additional cost and on case-by-case basis.
An aromatherapy kit which supports the course is also available. You are advised to purchase this kit if you have no experience of aromatherapy and no aromatherapy supplies. Check out the kit content to find out what you need to complete the course.
If you are paying with a payment plan, your course must be paid for in full before you can take the final examination paper to receive your certificate of completion. Please make sure that your payment plan is paid up by your examination date.
