Schedule and Tuition Costs

All five herbal modules are offered online each year; however, on-site modules are offered on rotations of two to three per year. Though students have the option of completing all five modules within a year, doing so is not necessary for certification. Moreover, online and on-site modules can be combined to complete the herbal course, and modules do not have to be taken in any particular order. Each module offers five hours of wet lab a total of 28-29 C.E. hours, approved by many state boards. Each online module grants web access to labs and lectures for four months.
Online modules include lectures and quizzes that are self-paces and may be accessed at any time during the four month period. On-site modules run for three-and-a-half days on the Chi Campus.
