Certified Holistic Health Practitioner

The Certified Holistic Health Practitioner (CHHP) program focuses on client interactions and practical knowledge so you can effectively lead others on their road to better health. This curriculum covers, in-depth, the essential techniques that natural health practitioners use to support their clients.

Emphasis is placed on understanding the many health challenges that commonly drive clients to seek natural healthcare and the most effective recommendations to support the whole person.

The Certified Holistic Health Practitioner (CHHP) program builds upon the foundations taught in the Certified Natural Health Professional (CNHP) program. Enrollment in this program requires completion of the CNHP program. Those with healthcare experience may be eligible to test into the CHHP program, with the successful completion of a placement exam. Call Student Services at 800-428-0408 for more information.

In a proactive step for our students, our ND program was updated, expanded, and renamed the Certified Holistic Health Practitioner (CHHP) program in 2017. This program is eligible for Board Certification through the American Naturopathic Medical Certification Board (ANMCB). Upon passing the ANMCB certification exam, a graduate may choose a title that matches their practice philosophy and state laws from several options offered, including Board Certified Naturopathic Doctor.

Learn. Demonstrate. Transform.

Our courses are delivered through the online learning management system, Canvas. Each week students receive lecture material in the form of voiced PowerPoint presentation, video, or reading assignment. Students participate in weekly discussions and activities which provide practical application of their skills and offers peer interaction and instructor feedback. Progress is documented in weekly quizzes and a comprehensive final examination at the completion of each 4-week course.

At the end of the CHHP program, students submit case studies and participate in a practicum. Through case studies, students are assessed on their interpretation of the client’s data and suggested recommendations. During the practicum, students are assessed on their competency of the technical skills pertaining to their designation. Within the practicum, students also complete a comprehensive certification exam.
