Homeopathic certification is a voluntary process to validate qualification and knowledge of classical homeopathy. To become certified, a homeopath must meet minimal competency standards, as set by the CHC. One purpose of certification is to promote public safety. Certification assures the public that a certified homeopath has completed all criteria required for the credential, Certified Classical Homeopath (CCH).
The designation CCH(Cand) indicates a candidate has pased the CHC exam and must meet further clinical training hours to complete full certification (CCH).
Certified Classical Homeopath’s voluntarily meet standards set out by the CHC that demonstrates their knowledge, skills, and expertise. Each homeopath must pass a written examination, psychometrically validated, created and administered by the Council for Homeopathic Certification, which includes adhering to a Code of Professional Ethics and Client/Patient Healthcare Rights.
The CHC also has an annual recertification process for maintenance of the CCH credential that requires proof of continuing education and experience for recertification.
The CCH (Ret) is issued upon request to certificants who are no longer practicing, teaching or supervising homeopathy.
