Certified Traditional Naturopath

In 2017, our Legacy ND program was updated, expanded, and renamed the Certified Holistic Health Practitioner (CHHP) program. This change provided students, from across the globe, a designation that was not subject to state restrictions and truly represented the knowledge and skills acquired through this program.

The Certified Traditional Naturopath (CTN) program serves as the culminating program from Trinity School of Natural Health and is specifically for students who identify as "Traditional Naturopaths". This program studies the founding philosophies of traditional naturopathy as well as teaches the elements of practice which are vital to a successful career in natural health.

The Certified Traditional Naturopath (CTN) program builds upon the techniques and practices taught in the Certified Holistic Health Practitioner (CHHP) program. Enrollment in this program requires completion of Trinity's CHHP or Legacy ND program, or other equivalent advanced natural health credentials.

Now taking enrollments for the February 1, 2021 class start.
