Continuing education is vital for all professionals to stay up-to-date with industry advances. In addition, most professional organizations—from the Florida Board of Health to the Oregon Board of Naturopathic Examiners—require continuing education (CE) hours to ensure regulatory compliance, educational rigor, and the highest standards of practice. 
 
ACHS offers a wide range of online CE opportunities in integrative medicine and holistic health to help meet your CE requirements and thirst for learning! For a list of current continuing education provider approvals, click here
 
As an accredited college, many organizations accept ACHS CEs. Please check with your professional body whether specific approval is required. If you are interested in having your professional organization approve ACHS CEs, please contact ACHS CSO Erika Yigzaw at [email protected]
