The Professional Herbalist Training Program provides a fundamental training in herbalism and the skills necessary to treat common and acute health conditions. Students will learn to address many of the health concerns presented by friends and family, as well as customers in a retail environment.
The Professional Herbalist Training Program is the first phase and the prerequisite for the Clinical Herbalist Training (CHT) Program, the second phase. The Clinical Herbalist Training (CHT) Program expands on the information and concepts covered in the first phase, PHT program. CHT is designed for students and health care practitioners who plan to practice herbalism and work with clients in a private setting. The skills learned in the CHT program lay a solid foundation for practicing herbalism.
Enrollment is limited, so register early to ensure your participation. Interviews will be arranged following the receipt of your application and deposit. Tuition for the program is $2,800, and includes course instruction, materials, samples, and a United Plant Savers membership. Students are responsible for the cost of their books, gardening tools, and additional materials.
