Herbalist Certification in Alabama - AL

At this time, the State of Alabama does not require by law that herbalist practitioners register and apply for professional licensure.  However, there are herbal medicine schools in Alabama that do offer certifications upon successfully completing the coursework.  Students can acquire a certificate in basic herbal training after completing a one year certificate program, which is held for eight months, one weekend per month. The weekend classes include classroom learning and lectures, fieldwork and wildcrafting, demonstrations, assignments, and examinations. The successful completion of all homework assignments, examinations and full attendance is required to be granted certification.

Another option is a practitioner certificate program. This is a two year program which is also held on weekends and that has an emphasis on clinical skills, intake, and assessment skills and emphasizes Southern and Appalachian folk medicine and the use of herbs.  The practitioner program can be followed with a year-long mentoring regime for those students who are interested in becoming community or clinical herbalists.

There are also herbal certifications available that can be obtained by national organizations, such as the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH).  Among the requirements of the NIMH organization is that a student must have completed an accredited course of study and pass a certifying examination.
