Herbalist Certification in North Dakota - ND

Some students may find that a certificate program fulfills their needs; many will need national certification to meet their goals. Herbal certification in North Dakota may be granted through the American Herbalists Guild, or AHG. The AHG has high standards. Education should include 200 hours in anatomy, physiology, and related sciences, 400 in Materia Medica (or herbal remedies), and 60 hours in plant identification.  Also required are 80 hours in pharmacology related issues, 20 in professionalism and ethics, 40 in field-related history and research, and 400 in the development of clinical skills.  Within these basic perimeters, there are actually a lot of options. Prospective students may want to check with their selected school to see that the program meets certification requirements.

Other options exist for highly trained professionals. Those with combined acupuncture and herbology training may want to pursue certification through NCCAOM.  The American Alternative Medical Association meanwhile recognizes the most highly educated professionals across alternative health professions. Although North Dakota does not license doctoral level naturopaths as primary care positions, some professionals in complementary and alternative medicine may have a PhD or other doctorate level degree; they may be pleased to know that they can seek recognition in the form of an additional certification.
