Herbalist Certification in Colorado - CO

The State of Colorado does not require official state certification and licensure of herbalists at this time. 

However, an herbalist certification in Colorado may be obtained on several levels, including certification in the fundamentals of medical herbalism, which requires 300 hours of classroom learning; a certificate in advanced herbalism, which requires 500 hours of training; a certificate in clinical herbalism, which requires 310 hours; and a flower essence practitioner certificate, which requires 45 hours of training. Prerequisites for each certification are a high school diploma or a General Equivalency Development (GED) certification.

For those that look to combine a career as an acupuncturist with that of a herbalist, be advised that the State of Colorado has a mandatory practice act, which means that you may not practice as an acupuncturist in this state without a Colorado license issued by the Colorado Office of Licensing.
