Holistic Practitioner Certification

The Holistic Practitioner Certification Program consists of three levels of intensive self-growth and study using Holistic Synergy as a basis. It is set up to assist the individual to be clear and focused when working with the healing process of another. Understanding how you yourself operate, understanding your interactive responsibility with all those around you, and finally understanding your interactive responsibility in the world - past, present and future - is the intent of the growth and healing process of Holistic Synergy.

Each level of study consists of nine required courses listed below, one NHC approved elective, one successfully completed weekend certification class, plus level appropriate documented practicum work. After successfully completing the Level Three certification weekend, the student is then required to complete twenty-two documented case studies to be submitted with an application for certification as a Holistic Practitioner.
