CNHP requires five seminars as the basis of our certification. Each certification seminar deals with a particular area of learning needed to become a Certified Natural Health Professional. Candidates are to attend and complete five certification seminars on the various theories and techniques used by natural health practitioners. Each seminar is led by a competent, experienced and dedicated instructor. A minimum of thirteen hours of study, classroom participation and practical demonstration is required in order to become certified. Initial certification is dependent upon the successful completion of a written exam given at the end of most seminars.
The five certification seminars are:
Nutrition - Covers the basic elements of health such as proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals
Body Systems - Understanding the organs, glands and tissues that handle all bodily processes
Iridology - Discovering weakened areas of the body quickly and accurately
Body Work - Bringing the structural aspect of the body into balance for a better impact on health
Practicum - Combining the legal, emotional and practical aspects of discussing health with others
While good students never stop learning, the information in these seminars provides the student with the hands-on application of traditional natural health information, concepts and strategies. To maintain certification, graduates must attend a minimum of one CNHP Capstone per year.
