We don’t “certify” herbalists because there isn’t any official licensing or certification for them in the US. However, from all of our program’s graduates DO receive a certificate, which serves as a stunning record of their successful completion and graduation.

There are benefits and drawbacks to the fact that there is no national certification for herbalists in the United States. The fact that herbalism in the United States is so diverse is what we admire most about it. In the United States, there are many fantastic herbal schools, and each one is different in the services it offers. The main flaw, in our opinion, is that anyone can identify as a herbalist, regardless of their level of education (or lack thereof). We believe that it is crucial for herbalists to disclose their education and experience because of this.

The First Amendment of the United States Constitution guarantees everyone the right of free speech, which includes herbalists. Herbalists are unable to diagnose or write prescriptions in the US. Instead, we assess people holistically and inform our clients and the public about medicinal plants, homeopathic treatments, a healthy diet, and lifestyle choices that support organ systems, tissues, and overall health and wellness.

Check out the American Herbalists Guild, a group that offers the community the Registered Herbalist title, if you’re interested in a professional certification as an herbalist. If you want to learn more about how to sign up as a member, you can read the American Herbalists Guild’s article to learn more about the requirements for herbalist licensing in the United States.

We are not accredited at all, and there’s a good reason why. Accreditation is a type of quality control that ensures higher education institutions, such as universities and colleges, meet specified requirements. There are no authorized trade schools or herb schools (unless they are part of a college program).

When there is a set time to meet and work on the program, students finish the herbal program considerably more quickly, according to Zola’s Original Herbal Center.

You get out of it what you put into it, as most teachers will say! Although there are assignments, many of the   options can be chosen by the student. Many students devote specific time each week to their homework, which often includes finishing projects, conducting research, and preparing for quizzes and tests. We advise students to act responsibly without becoming overly anxious about the process.
