Students will have in-depth education studies and courses in herbal medicine. The materials are updated on a regular basis, and we encourage students to explore the herbal world around them.

Heart of Herbs students are also encouraged to access all online course materials also.

We have students all over the world, and this gives a chance for students to learn from each other also. In addition, we also offer phone and email support for students. Students only communicate with Demetria, the Director. This insures that students feel a connection and confident they are given the guidance they need.

The requirements for certification are as follows- complete all workbook materials and assignments, chapter sections, intakes, book reports and the final. Your whole body of work is evaluated and if students need additional support for success, it will be given.  You can securely order the program using Visa, MC, AMEX and Discover.
