Practitioner Certificate

Is this for me?

The Practitioner Certificate courses are open to anyone interested in studying homeopathy on a professional level. Completion of the four courses (HSI 101, 102, 201, and 202)  will give you the qualifications to enter the profession as an independent practitioner of classical homeopathy. If you are a physician or a healthcare practitioner and would like to expand your expertise with homeopathy, this training will provide you with professional homeopathic skills to add to your practice.

Upon graduation you will receive the Practitioner Certificate (CHom). HSI certification stands for the achievement of a professional level of competency in the art and science of homeopathy. Completion of the program also satisfies the 500 hours of preparation in the theory and foundations of homeopathy required by the Council for Homeopathic Certification if you choose to get nationally certified.


You can study at any time, from any location worldwide. Regardless of your location, you have access to the study of homeopathy with the school’s cutting edge, integrated curriculum, expert faculty and tutor support. Our flexible program allows you to fit your studies to your personal schedule and become a professional homeopath.

I would really like to thank you for all the nice and encouraging feed back on my work and for returning the assignments so quickly. I am so glad I chose this program. I really enjoy it and will recommend it to anyone who is interested in Homeopathy. Great instructors and material that is interesting and challenging!
