Herbalist Certification in California - CA

Herbal Medicine Degrees in California

It’s estimated that one third of Americans use herbal remedies and medicines in addition to conventional western medical treatments. This percentage is estimated to be higher in California, where alternative medicine treatments are extremely popular.

In light of the significant usage of herbs and other alternative medicinal techniques by Californians, the California State Legislature recently passed a bill allowing people who are not licensed as health practitioners to perform certain medical treatments, including providing herbal remedies. This law has opened the doors for herbalists and other alternative medicine practitioners to practice more widely and openly, making it a great time to start a career as an herbalist in California.

Herbalist certification is not required in California in order for herbalists to practice, nor does the state issue licenses to certified herbalists. Practitioners only need be licensed if they plan to practice herbalism in conjunction with acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, or other forms of licensed alternative medicine. However, certification can signify to potential employers and customers alike that you are serious about your profession, skilled in the craft of herbalism, and measure up to the highest safety and health standards. A number of independent organizations and associations, such as the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), offer certification in specific branches of herbalism or in general herbalism.

            Trade schools in Los Angeles are built on a solid foundation of academic experience, especially Advanced College in South Gate. The founders of Advanced College have 40 years of experience when they opened their own institute of higher learning in 1999, which means Advanced College was student-oriented from day one. Our reputation as a leading vocational nursing & Allied Health school in Los Angeles is well-established, but that is just the beginning. Our expansive South Gate Campus has grown in our time as a school in order to make room for our daily operations. However, our expansion goes beyond the boundaries of our walls.
