Over the past year, I have been working hard to write a quality, aromatherapy course program for home study. In the course of that process, I have attained accreditation with several of the major continuing education providers in the United States. If you are thinking of taking an aromatherapy course in the near future, here are some of the reasons why you might consider Sedona Aromatherapie!
NAHA Approved Courses for Aromatherapy
The National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA) is recognized as a leading aromatherapy organization in the United States, and across the world. Approved providers have to adhere to set guidelines to attain status as an approved aromatherapy school educator.
Sedona Aromatherapie currently offers the Foundation Course in Aromatherapy which meets and exceeds level 1 certification requirements, as outlined by NAHA. I am also working towards the completion of level 2 which is anticipated for release in early 2014.
Level 1 is ideal if you want to get a good grounding in aromatherapy but are not sure if you want to commit to a more lengthly (and costly) level 2 course; level 2 prepares you fully for a career in professional aromatherapy.
NCBTMB Continuing Education Credits for Aromatherapy
Sharon Falsetto is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) as a continuing education Approved Provider (provider number 223).
All of the current home study aromatherapy courses at Sedona Aromatherapie qualify for continuing education credits as follows:
Foundation Course in Aromatherapy (50 hours)
Lavender Aromatherapy (6 hours)
Sage Aromatherapy (4 hours)
Basic Butters, Balms, Creams and Lotions (14 hours)
Bath Products with Essential Oils (14 hours)
Natural Perfumes with Essential Oils (14 hours).
Continuing Education Credits for Registered Aromatherapists
Registered aromatherapists who need continuing education credits for their registration with the Aromatherapy Registration Council (ARC) in the United States, can also study one of the Sedona Aromatherapie courses and obtain credits for doing so.
Approved Aromatherapy Certification Within the United States
As I continue to expand the Sedona Aromatherapie home study aromatherapy course program, I will try, where possible, to open the courses up for other accreditation to make this a truly international home study program. However, some students have already started courses in countries such as Canada, the UK and Australia – sometimes we start out studying for fun or pleasure, never knowing that it might be a more serious start of a wonderful journey into aromatherapy!
