Advantages of Online Herbology Courses
The advantages of online herbology courses include lower educational costs, working from the convenience of your own home and working at your own pace.
Disadvantages of Online Herbology Courses
Online herbology courses do not provide students with clinical opportunities and may also lack basic sciences. Online herbology courses are generally insufficient for people seeking professional membership in the American Herbalist Guild.
To become a professional member of the American Herbalist Guild, an herbalist’s education must have included 400 hours in clinical training. Students receiving certification online or from schools not offering clinical training may arrange private mentorships.
